Podocarpus (Buddist Pine)

Another beautiful species of Bonsai tree which will live indoors or outdoors and will handle a light frost due to its hardy nature. Podocarpus is an evergreen tree with pointed, leathery, dark green leaves. This species will flower in summer with small, creamy white flowers. A fast growing tree when in the right conditions. The species likes to be in a well lit position and doesn’t like to be over-watered. The Podocarpus tree is part of the conifer family and is often referred to as the ‘Buddist Pine’.

Broom style (Hokidachi)
The broom style is suitable for deciduous trees with large numbers of fine and delicate branching. The trunk is straight and upright and does not continue to the top of the tree; it branches out in all directions at about 1/3 the height of the tree. The branches and leaves form a ball-shaped top which is beautiful in leaf but also a stunning sight during the colder months when the leaves have dropped.

Each of these beautiful little starter trees come with a free ‘Bonsai Care Guide’ booklet which was written to give a beginner all the information they need to get started with growing Bonsai. Please read the booklet when your tree arrives and follow the instructions. If you have any questions you are welcome to drop us an email (which can be found on the back of your booklet) together with the major ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ list 😊

Podocarpus are fairly tolerant and hardy trees; making them good Bonsai for beginners and they should travel well by post; however, they are likely to drop some leaves during their journey and when they first arrive at their new home, so don’t be alarmed if you see a few leaves dropping at first. We will make sure your tree is well watered prior to being packaged and sent to you, so it shouldn’t dry out during transit. When it arrives take it out and remove all the packaging and position your tree in a well lit spot (outside or near a window), check the surface soil for moisture and water accordingly (follow instructions in your ‘Bonsai Care Guide’).

We have lots of these trees in stock and each one is unique! Informal-Upright style Bonsai is the classic S shape that makes them wonderfully unusual and. The tree you will get if you purchase one of these trees will not be one of the examples in the pictures. I have tried to show a range of examples of the Podocarpus in the photographs and one will be selected at random when a purchase is made.

Please note; due to our garden and nursery being closed during the pandemic we are doing everything we can to supply our customers with the goods and services that they usually come to visit us for. Please contact us with any concerns should you be worried about your tree; selling online is a new venture for us and we pride urselves on our Bonsai being in perfect health when they leave our nursery. We have always been reluctant to send live plants through the post; but due to the pandemic and so many customers crying out for us to deliver; we are doing our best.
