Cotoneaster Bonsai Tree Care

Location

Outdoor bonsai tree.  Site in full sun or partial shade. It will require protection from heavy, prolonged frost.

Watering

Water daily during growing season. Keep moist during winter.

Pruning

Prune back new shoots regularly when the tree is growing. Cotoneaster have a dense growth habit and with regular pruning this can be increased. The shoots grow very straight. These shoots can be trained with bonsai wire if you wish.

Although Cotoneaster are evergreen trees, each leaf does not live forever. Old leaves from previous years growth will yellow and fall away. Keep the bonsai looking smart by removing these old leaves from the tree and the soil surface. This will help to encourage light into the crown, aiding new growth.

Feeding

Feed every two weeks from spring to autumn, using a mild fertiliser at around NPK 555. You can also use a slow release fertiliser such as Naruko.

Repotting

Repot annually or every two years using a general bonsai soil mix.
