About the Author


Matthew Puntigam's interest in gardens took him to Japan, where he studied garden design and bonsai. After moving to New York, he turned to bonsai again as a creative and grounding practice. Proving no space too small for nature to thrive, his first bonsai garden started on a third floor fire escape (which he does not recommend).

He is the founder of Dandy Farmer, a bonsai studio and shop based in Brooklyn which sells bonsai, offers maintenance and plant-sitting services, and runs workshops to introduce the art of bonsai to the community. When not caring for plants, he also designs and builds gardens. He dreams of putting a bonsai tree on every windowsill.
