Outdoor bonsai trees for sale ….. Watch this space.
If you are wondering why our outdoor bonsai stock varies so greatly at different times of year, please let me explain. Firstly, the range and diversity of outdoor hardy bonsai is vast and includes both deciduous and evergreen species. From late autumn to early spring i.e. throughout winter months, many of these bonsai are dormant and will have dropped their leaves.
From experience we have found that people prefer bonsai to be photographed in leaf, so this narrows our window of being able to photograph these lovely beauties significantly.
The potting season for indoor bonsai is vast whereas outdoor bonsai need to be potted when out of leaf but not during the harshest part of winter. This essentially means that we pot through February and March.
Now for the exciting months… New buds and leaves start to develop from April. So, by May we can start adding all our beautiful outdoor bonsai range onto our website. We love this time of year. You will consequently notice that through late spring and early summer our outdoor bonsai range increases tenfold.
Please be patient… Spring is around the corner and we shall be adding hundreds of new bonsai trees to this outstanding range. In the meantime, please clear your gardens and prepare your patios for some summer splendour!.
Can a bonsai tree survive outside?
For ease of classification, we divide bonsai into two categories – indoor and outdoor bonsai. This is not totally accurate but for our purposes is an effective definition.
Indoor bonsai tend to grow naturally in more tropical or sub-tropical climates and consequently need over winter protection; in general, they are not frost hardy and will grow more successfully in your home.
Outdoor bonsai are often native species, extremely hardy (whether deciduous or evergreen) and grow extremely successfully in a sheltered garden environment. They make a fabulous feature within the garden, upon a patio or decking or on a protected balcony. They are in their natural environment so they will thrive. For spells of very hard frost or snow for more than 5 days in a row we would recommend covering or sheltering an outdoor bonsai so that it does not dehydrate as a result of a constantly frozen root ball. Don’t forget – outdoor bonsai are winter hardy and should be kept outside all year round!
Can you plant bonsai trees in the ground?
A bonsai is a small tree in an ornamental pot; it is not a magical tree kept small by mystical powers (although we do love this concept!). The size of the bonsai is achieved by regular pruning and the fact that the root ball is restricted by the size of the pot.
If you plant a bonsai in the ground the roots will grow far more quickly in depth and overall spread. The result of this is dramatic growth of leaves and branches. Over a few years, the tree will grow substantially and ultimately, if left in the ground, grow into a full-sized tree.
There are occasions when this is a very useful bonsai technique. But, please only use this for outdoor bonsai as most indoor bonsai varieties require overwinter protection to survive. If you plant a bonsai in the ground please keep the soil damp, especially for the first growing season. The roots would not be well enough established to find their own water during the hot summer months.
The main reason for planting a bonsai in the ground (or much larger pot) would be to thicken the trunk. This would take about 2-5 years but the ultimate result would be worth the effort. The branches would grow in girth and length and would ultimately have to be pruned back hard to maintain good proportions – but what you would achieve is a wonderful trunk structure, sturdy and mature within a few years. Some growers lift a bonsai from the ground during February – March on an annual basis to keep the roots lightly pruned and in check.
