Bloody Hell A Blog Post

I’ve just been nosing through the website and realised that I haven’t done a blog post for ages. In terms of our stock of bonsai trees, we’re got more than ever. The place is really very full now. I wish I had more time to photograph and list them on the website. This year’s Chinese Junipers have just arrived and look fantastic. We’ve also got lots of Japanese White Pine bonsai trees. I didn’t go for very large expensive ones this year. They are from about £100 up to £400. We’ve had the shop for seven years now. It’s long enough for the wooden benches outside to have rotted and need replacing, so I’ve been making new ones. It’s interesting from me to see how…

A long Overdue Holiday

Got back from a long overdue holiday recently. If you’ve ever been to see our little bonsai nursery in Sheffield, you’ll know that we love what we do. We’ve had the place for nearly eight years now and it’s easily the best thing I have done in my life. The work is harder than you may think – but on a good day it can’t be beaten. On the flip slide, it’s pretty difficult to get time off. In the past, we tried to take a holiday in summer. Any keeper of a bonsai tree collection will know that holidays take a little planning. It’s a good idea to have someone you can trust to water your trees. For people with a nursery, it’s a…

Bonsai Winter Holidays

We had a winter holiday for the first time this year. Normally we go away in summer to somewhere Mediterranean but watering the trees in summer is problematic with a collection of our size. We tend to get a rota going with people arranged for each day and a backup contact for each person. If you have a collection of your own bonsai, its a good idea to find a fellow bonsai grower and help each other out at holiday times. This year we decided to go away in January. We had to go a little further afield, so had our first trip to the Caribbean. This meant far less watering had to be done, which made it much easier to go. We just about…

What We Like – Good Quality Bonsai Trees At A Good Price

I have been growing bonsai trees for 23 years now. I got my first one when I was 12. When I was young, I couldn’t find anywhere to buy good bonsai trees from. When I was a little older, I couldn’t afford to buy any of the trees that I found in professional bonsai centres. When I set up All Things Bonsai, I wanted to bring people good quality bonsai trees that people could actually afford to buy AND give them the confidence to have a go. So – What we Like – good quality bonsai trees at a good price While we do have £1000 plus bonsai trees, I like to offer people nice trees for around a £100 or under. Not sticks in pots and…

We’ve got a nice range of Azalea flowering bonsai trees for sale again. For anyone who doesn’t know, they really are the kings of the flowering bonsai. Beautiful trees with nice small leaves for most of the year, with a huge blast of colour in a showy display in late spring or early summer. The need to be kept outside and need some winter protection. A greenhouse or conservatory would be great for this. Being ericaceous plants, they hate the lime in tap water, so catch rain water to keep them happy. Let them flower for a couple of weeks and then trim off the flowers so that they don’t tire themselves out with the flowers. Hang off from any major pruning until after flowering,…

Merry Christmas to all our friends and customers from all things bonsai

Hi all, just a quick not to say thanks to everyone for their help or business this year. We’ve had a great year, the best one so far, with lots of sales in the run up to xmas. I hope everyone has happy bonsai for the year ahead. Its been a mild winter so far which has really saved the pennies on heating, as well as making the deliveries easier. The re-vamped website has been a success and helped us climb up the google rankings for bonsai tree related searches. Re plans for the new year, we’re hoping to increase the product range available online and in the shop, offer more varied bonsai classes / workshops and work on improving the look of the outdoor…
