The compost you use to grow Bonsai (or any plants for that matter) is hugely important. Our Bonsai compost is very nutrient rich and free draining which allows trees, plants and even succulent to thrive when planted in to it.

We have been growing Bonsai using our compost for over 30 years and have always had great success with our growing and cultivation as a result.

The compost you use to grow Bonsai (or any plants for that matter) is hugely important. Our Bonsai compost is very nutrient rich and free draining which allows trees, plants and even succulent to thrive when planted in to it.

We have been growing Bonsai using our compost for over 30 years and have always had great success with our growing and cultivation as a result.

Imported trees are usually potted in to a very clay based compost which tends to be very water retentive (thus allowing growers to water their plants less often) however many species of Bonsai do not like this kind of growing medium and therefore can suffer with root problems as a result. Trees that arrive at The Japanese Garden are immediately repotted in to our own Bonsai Compost and the results in growth over the following weeks are always astounding.

If you are about to repot your tree for the first time, please have a read of our ‘Bonsai Care Guide‘ for details on how to repot and root prune.
