All our stock is grown specifically for bonsai. Plants are root pruned from an early age to ensure you get the best possible start to a great nebari. Regular pruning produces trunks with movement and taper.
Here’s some examples of what we produce but we also grow small numbers of other species and varieties that will be suitable for bonsai. If you are after something special please ask.
