Bonsai Care

The myth of Bonsai being difficult to care for is false!
The botanical care of Bonsai is actually very simple.
Like their older sisters, trees in their natural landscape require 3 simple things for a long and prosperous life.
Air, water, and plenty of sunlight. 
Follow our simple guidelines for the health and prosperity of your Bonsai.
Water your trees when the soil gets slightly dry
This means you should not water your tree when the soil is still wet but only when it feels slightly dry; use your fingers to check the soil at around 1cm deep. But never let a tree dry out completely! Once you get more experienced you will be able to see (instead of feel) when a tree needs watering.
Never water on a routine.
Keep observing your trees individually, instead of watering them on a daily routine, until you know exactly what you are doing.
Bonsai love direct sunlight, 3-4 hours daily at a minimum.
Feel free to bring your Bonsai indoors form time to time as long as it generally lives outdoors.
Feed your Bonsai 'Bonsai Boy's Plant Fertiliser' in the growing season.
Please call us for any further clarification or specific questions.
