In our opinion, this really is a very good place to start growing bonsai trees. This bonsai is a good size. It is larger than our standard bonsai range which, means it will grow faster and be easier to care for because the larger pot holds more water and consequently dries out less frequently.
If you are confused by what to buy, choose this kit; you simply cannot go wrong. It also makes a great gift.
The Chinese Elm is an easy to grow, twiggy bonsai which looks like a miniature tree. Because it grows quite quickly, you can have some fun with pruning, styling & wiring.

  1. Katie Landers

    I have left it a few weeks to send my review as I wanted to see the bonsai develop. It arrived beautifully packaged and I was updated as to the time of delivery. I am glad I ordered the drip tray because the bonsai does have holes in the bottom for drainage. It is a lovely sized bonsai for my kitchen windowsill and the kit comes with the pruning scissors and fertiliser. I water it about every 3 days and it has grown lots of new leaves. A very happy addition to our family. Hubby calls it Ernie Elm!

    Hi, just to say thank you.
    I ordered the bonsai yesterday and it arrived today, as promised.
    Excellent service and excellent bonsai.

    Thank you Sarah for your advice on the telephone. I ordered this one as you recommended and it is now my favourite of my 6 bonsai. It grows much more quickly than some of the other bonsai so I enjoy pruning it. I have had lots of new growth and I only ordered 3 weeks ago. I live in Glasgow and delivery was free which always helps.
