How to look after your Bonsai

Top tips for caring for your bonsai:

  • Add a little bit of sunshine: ensure your bonsai gets the right amount of sunshine. Most outdoor bonsai plants should be placed in a sheltered position that receives morning sun and afternoon shade. 
  • Moisture is key: bonsai plants have a very small root system that can dry out quickly, so it's important to keep plants well-watered, particularly during hot dry weather.
  • Don't forget to give your Bonsai a feed: ensure you fertilise your bonsai, especially during their growing season.
Happy Gardening!
