What is a bonsai? The word ‘bonsai’ can be literally translated into ‘bon’ meaning tray or pot and ‘sai’ meaning tree or plant. Starter kits include young, small bonsai which have received an element of pre-styling but are perfect to get started in growing, wiring, pruning and potting techniques. We offer a range of indoor starter kits with different varieties of tree from flowering species such as the Oriental Tea Tree to twiggy classics such as the Chinese Elm. These kits offer great value for money as many include extra accessories for caring for your little tree. A great gift idea too! We deliver 7 days a week with free next working day options available.
