Death is constantly present around us. Without death no life. So what can fit better as a theme for a pot for a lush plant or tree''

Bonsai Fertiliser / Feed

 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).

Bonsai Soils

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. Click the link above for more information.

      

Bonsai Repotting Supplies

 Repotting your bonsai tree is also a very important part of keeping bonsai. 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. Check what species you are working with for more detailed information about when to repot as timing of some species varies a little. Autumn repotting is also suitable for some species. Only repot if the tree needs to be repotted.

 

 

Here we have plenty of bonsai accessories to choose from, turntables, tool rolls, feed baskets, camelia oil, wound sealant, cut paste and plenty more.

Here you might just find that special pot you've been looking for. Our range of pots is growing all the time. If you are looking for larger sized / unusual pots contact us as we can get very large pots to order.
