Checking a sentence! Do I have the right idea about it?


#1

Here is a part of today’s listening practice.

「このように美しい盆栽を作るには、毎日の手入れがとても大切です。植物の性質を考えながら、枝を切ったり、針金を使って曲げたりして、長い年月をかけて大切に育てます。」

Have I got the right idea…

Daily maintenance is very important [in growing/to grow] a beautiful bonsai tree like this. Growing them with care takes a long time; such as cutting the branches, shaping [bending] it using wire, while considering the nature of the plant.

Thanks for any help!
