Bonsai Care

The bonsai we sell are all hardy outdoor plants and will not tolerate an indoor location. The best garden exposure is morning sun with afternoon shade. If you live where the summer temperature can get in the mid 90’s or higher, it’s best to put the bonsai on the ground where the root zone can be cooler during this period. Water every day just as you would any potted flowers or other plants.

The root zone needs some winter protection when the temperature gets down to the 20’s and lower. I find the best way to do this is by putting the bonsai on the ground in a sheltered location such as underneath shrubs or trees and raking leaves over the pot. In my experience, the ceramic pots do not crack and the leaves provide adequate insulation for the plants. If it gets quite cold, in the low teens, I supplement this by putting a frost blanket such as Reemay row cover over the plants.
