October 2017 "Miniature Signature"
I always make small versions of new designs and glazes to document my work. In August, Alex EBPC Rudd took a look at some of these and immediately wanted a set of my signature pots. These he had with him at the autumn shows and events and orders began to flow to me. The Skull pot, Nidhögg, Four Kings Corner and Crackled Turquoise where made in mame versions. So the plans were changed and I decided to make two collection boxes in only one copy, with different themes, and release them together with individual pots in the October edition 2017. For me, it became very fitting, as a summary of several years of work, before I'm in November going to Tokoname to work for a month. I know that this will affect my work fundamentally. A second beginning. Thor is dead, long live Thor.

You're sure to find a suitable pot for your tree at a really great price.

Feeding your bonsai is vital for the long term health of the tree. How you feed depends on what you want to achieve. Generally you should feed throughout the growing season (March to September ish) with a good balanced fertiliser. Fertilisers have an NPK This stands for the amount of Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potash (Potassium) A balanced feed will have an NPK of something like 5:5:5 or 10:10:10
Probably one the most important things for successful bonsai cultivation is good quality free draining soil that's open enough to allow the roots to breathe and allow the pot to dry out a little between watering. It will also need to retain the right amount of moisture between watering. We stock some ready to use mixes or neat soil substrates. Click the link above for more information.
Repotting your bonsai tree is also a very important part of keeping bonsai over a long period of time. As your tree grows so do the roots. If you don't repot your bonsai it will eventually become pot bound and the health of the tree can slowly deteriorate and may even die. Root pruning and a fresh pot of soil will insure your bonsai tree stays in peak health. Generally you should repot in early spring just as the tree is waking up from dormancy or as the buds start to swell but before the leaves are opening. Check what species you are working with for more detailed information about when to repot as timing for some species does vary a little. Autumn repotting is also suitable for some species. Only repot if the tree needs to be repotted.
Here we have plenty of accessories and supplies to help make life a little easier when working with your bonsai trees.
We have a large selection of standard bonsai pots available in this section. We also have plastic training pots and ceramic drip trays available.
