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 and nutrients between watering. We stock some of the most popular brands on the market as well as our own ready to use soil mixes. 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.
We have a large selection of bonsai pots, training pots & ceramic drip trays. We have standard quality pots and higher quality pots available for sale in this section. If you have trees in training then be sure to have a look at our range of high quality rigid plastic training pots as these are sure to get your bonsai material on the right path. We also stock a range of plastic & ceramic drip trays. All ceramics are fired to be frost proof and all pots have wire & or draining holes.
Feeding your bonsai tree is vital for the long term health of the plant. How you feed depends on the particular spewhat 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
