Welcome to our Bonsai site which has information on caring for your bonsai trees.Welcome to EcomCity's Bonsai shoppe where you can learn about this ageless hobby.Bonsai Shop

Want a really rewarding hobby? Practiced for centuries in China and Japan, bonsai is the reproduction of natural tree forms in miniature. Bonsai trees are living miniature trees which increase in beauty and value as they mature over the years. Get into Bonzai trees for some really dramatic patio or unique LIVING home and garden decorations. Believe me it is a unique rewarding hobby that will awaken your life. A mature Bonsai after years of shaping can live over 100 years

Shape-harmony-proportion-scale are all weighed carefully as a art form, and the human hand combines this in a common cause with nature. The art of bonsai was not introduced to America until after World War II, when soldiers brought back specimens they bought. Today, bonsai is practiced throughout the world. The results of  transforming a ordinary scrub or tree, whether gathered from the wild or at a local nursery, can be very dramatic and certainly a life enriching and serene hobby. Learn more about how to tend to and train Bonsai trees below. We offer for sale many bonsai trees ready to display in your home or office at  very reasonable prices. EcomCity's Bonsai shop also showcases rare 30-40 year old Bonsai trees pruned and shaped by bonsai masters ranging in price from $1000 to $9500. These showpieces become living family heirlooms passed from generation to generation.

Bonsai (pronounced bone-sigh) is an ancient oriental horticultural art form. The word Bonsai literally means, in both Chinese and in the Japanese language, tree-in- a-pot. Originally developed in the Orient almost 2000 years ago, today the sublime art of bonsai is practiced throughout the world. Take a look at these Juniper Bonsai Trees now on sale...

A tree planted in a small pot is not a bonsai until it has been pruned, shaped, and trained into the desired shape. Bonsai are kept small by careful control of the plant's growing conditions and root system. Only branches important to the bonsai's overall design are allowed to remain andThis is a 60 year old Bonsai maple Tree in full color unwanted growth is pruned away as the pot size is reduced over the years. Roots are confined to a specialized pot and are periodically clipped when they become over grown. Bonsai may have a stylized or an exaggerated form ... mimicking the aging as found in nature.

The appearance of old age of a plant is much prized and bonsai may live to be hundreds of years old. The living bonsai will change from season to season and from year to year requiring pruning and training throughout it's lifetime ... and as time goes on it will become more and more beautiful. No wonder Bonsai enthusiasts consider these the ultimate collectible as they become priceless. Bonsai crystallizes the Chinese and Japanese aesthetic life style with the art of gardening where there's a "World in a Stone and View in a Tree". Truly nature touches you if you reach out and touch it.

Here are a few words of advice for the newcomer that may help to better prepare you for what is to become a lifelong hobby.A cascading style using a juniper

  • Bonsai is an outdoor activity. Trees and scrubs are outdoor plants, putting them into pots does not transform them into indoor plants. With very few exceptions, if you keep your bonsai indoors for extended periods.. they will die. Make room for your collection outside where they thrive. You will be happier and your trees will be happier.

  • You will make mistakes. Lots of them. Everyone does. In fact, most of us still do. Like any art form ..this takes learning and experience is the best teacher.

  • You will kill trees. This is a sad fact of the activity, especially as you start out. You are dealing with living things, and you must be respectful of that. Commit yourself to understanding why every tree dies and what can be done to prevent it. Learn from your mistakes and do your best to prevent them in the future.

  • Try to limit yourself at first to a few kinds of plants. Every tree is different. Likewise, every kind of tree is different. Learn to care for a few different types of plants, and grow your collection from there as you expand your design styles.

Juniper in a Rock-Medium Juniper in a Rock-Medium

We grow the Juniper in lava-rock (pumice stone) by boring a hole in the rock and sawing flat the bottom of the stone. Since the lava-rock is pourous the rock serves the same purpose as the bonsai pot. When we think of a traditional bonsai and what it should look like we think of a Juniper procumbens. They are hardy and long-lived and tolerate many adverse conditions. Popular and Unique. 5 years old-8" tall...$65.00


It is impossible to write a simple set of care rules. Every species of plant has it's own special needs. Each location and environment is different too, and have to be considered. Therefore it is important, when starting in bonsai, to read all you can on the art. Take advantage of your local bonsai club and we offer links to many online resources on this special EcomCity Bonsai links page.

BASIC CARE OF BONSAI

WATERING

More bonsai are lost due to improper watering than from all other causes combined. Bonsai azailia and juniper trees for saleThe length of time between watering can vary quite a bit depending on conditions such as humidify, soil moisture retention, weather conditions, and size of pot. Bonsai usually need to be watered every day or two. The best time to water is early in the day or late in the afternoon at the same time every day. A through watering is accomplished when excess water runs out of the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot, BUT ... too much water can be just as bad as too little water. In general the soil should be moist, not soaking wet, and not dry! TIP: Collect fresh rainwater in a oaken barrel as a special watering trick. Your tree will love the chemical free moisture.

FERTILIZING

Feedings vary from plant to plant (such as flowering plants have different requirements than the junipers). A water-soluble fertilizer is usually applied every 2 to 4 weeks during the growing season, in a half-strength solution. Miracle-Gro or Miracid are commonly used, but check label directions for your tree. DO NOT FEED right after repotting (wait for 3-4 weeks). Don't feed if the tree is in a sicken condition. Always pre-moisten the plant soil first and NEVER fertilize a very dry bonsai... you'll burn it's roots and any decorative moss. TIP: moss collecting was one of my favorite field trips since I often discovered some great tree specimens along stream banks.

REPOTTING

Special made bonsai potsA bonsai must periodically be repotted to supply a pot-bound root system with fresh soil. It is also necessary to keep the root system in balance with the top growth. Most require repotting every two or three years and should be placed in specialized pots. This depends on the growth of the tree and also on the size of the pot ( some may be placed into smaller pots after triming 20 % off roots). This should be done in the early spring. Do not fertilize for 3-4 weeks after repotting. Do not let the roots go dry while repotting. Water well when finished but do not fertilize or place in direct sun light for at least 1 week.

BONSAI CARE TIPS

A bonsai is nothing more than a miniature version of a normal plant, therefore it can be treated Bonsai forest by grouping trees in a triangle settingwith commonly found insecticides and fungicides according to directions on the package. Insects such as aphids, spider mites, scale, and root aphids are a common problem corrected by sprays, soapy rinse, or a systemic treatment. Often moss gathered from the wild makes a perfect complement to soil choice since it visually signals a dry plant while looking great!

TRIMMING PRUNING AND TRAINING

Trimming and pruning are the means by which a bonsai is kept miniature. This involves the systematic removal of vigorous growth in the spring. It is important however, to understand that for the health of the tree one should never remove all the new growth at one time. The roots are trimmed and so is the foliage on the plant. The tree limbs are wound with annealed copper wire to assist in getting branches to grow in a specific position and to enhance the look of the tree. This very flexible wire is removed after 6 months so as not to scar the tree limbs. Usually the branch should then stay in that position on it's own. Wire should be carefully cut from the branches. Do not unwind wires as this could break the branch. Trim branches to expose the trunk and to shape the tree into the look you want. Two goals in bonsai are to make young trees look older by thickening the trunk and the positioning of the branches, and to find enjoyment in a hobby that salutes -Nature.

 THE DESIRED LOOK

Bonsai is not simply a styled tree, but the combination of the tree and the pot. The tree and the pot form a single harmonious unit where the shape, texture and color of one complements the other. Then the tree must be shaped. Every branch and twig of a bonsai is shaped or eliminated until the chosen image is achieved. From then on, the image is maintained and improved by a constant regime of pruning and trimming. NEED More resources for your Bonsai hobby? I have compiled over the years this full links guide to Bonsai Clubs and sites that are devoted to this 2000 year old hobby..Take look and share your love of bonsai with other like minded folks worldwide.

Watering Properly - Watering properly is critical to maintaining a healthy bonsai. Indoor bonsai should normally be watered every two or three days. Never allow your bonsai to completely dry out. Humidity trays filled with decorative stone not only capture excess water, they also create needed humidity around your bonsai. During the time your indoor bonsai is outdoors, it will require more frequent waterings. Thoroughly water your bonsai daily during this outdoor period. Water your bonsai properly by using a watering can or hose attachment that has a fine-spray nozzle. You should thoroughly soak your bonsai’s soil. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but should not be considered watering.

The Bonsai tree itself will present either a single triangle or set of triangle shaped features. The highest point of the triangle is, in most cases, the top of the tree (called the "apex"). The right and left points of the triangle are formed by the first and second branches (the two branches closest to the ground). Most of the basic styles follow this general rule. When viewing the displays, see if you can find the triangles.

Other features to look for are good, strong, visible roots (nebari), a Formal upright ficus bonsaigentle movement and taper in the trunk (tachi-agari), a distinct apex, and well developed branches and foliage. The trunk should have a good taper, with good root formation visible at soil level. Branches should be larger at the bottom of the tree and decrease in size as they near the top. The distance between the branches should decrease as they near the top of the tree. There should be negative (open) areas between the branches to give the impression of a tree rather than a shrub. A bonsai may have areas of dead wood to give an impression of age. To fully appreciate bonsai, get down to the level of the tree and look up into it much as you would look at a tree in nature.

At this point, a style should be suggesting itself to you. Does the tree fit any particular style? Can you see it as a windswept design, as a cascade? Is the tree suited to the style you select? Not all trees are suited to all styles, so you need to know something about the growth characteristics of the species you select. What kind of growth and shaping will be required in order for the tree to emerge? Do you see something in that mass of branches, twigs, needles, or leaves that others might not? How can you bring it out? You'll never just  see trees anymore as you'll  grow to notice the shapes of nature.

INDOOR BONSAI Growing Tips

There are many varieties of plants that do well as an indoor bonsai such as ficus, aralia, azalea norfolk pine, serissa, gardenia, orIndoor bonsai ficus tree approximately 35 years old grown from nursery stock boxwood. Note that these are all woody-stemmed plants and can have their limbs wired to direct the growth in the desired shape. Tropical and subtropical varieties can not tolerate tempers below 40 - 50 degrees F. These plants can be left outside when the temperatures stay above this. Light inside the house should be by filtered sunlight from an east, south, or west window. Grow lights 12 hours per day work well if placed close to plant top.

All Bonsai trees need extra moisture and plenty of sun light. Outside, during the Spring and Summer months, find a place that has partial shade and gets protected from strong winds to put your indoor tree for fresh air and watering. Multi level wooden benches that have open slates are inexpensive to make to tree displays.

Insects & Diseases - Insects and diseases can attack bonsai just like any other plant. Inspect your bonsai regularly. A brisk spraying of the trunk and foliage periodically will help keep your tree clean. If any problems appear, most garden centers have products available for treatment.

Older bonsai trees can simulate 200 year old trees. The photo shown here is of a Chinese Elm Bonsai tree that I was lucky enough to inherit from a Japanese expert who spent many long days and countless hours teaching me this art form. The tree was given to him by his Father and he estimated it to be over 80 years old. This one deserves a special place in my house and patio so I have purchased various display stands in rosewood and teak to show it off to visitors.

Just as you want your groceries to be fresh, you should also expect your flowers to be. Unfortunately, flowers do not have a "best before" date stamped on them. There is virtually no way of knowing just how fresh they are, or how long you can expectSend Fresh Flowers for any occasion direct from the growers your flowers to last. Essentially the typical supply chain works likes this... At the end of a flower growers day, all previously cut flowers that are not sold directly to consumers like yourself (Direct from the Grower), are then shipped to auctions or wholesalers throughout Canada and the United States. These are in turn sold at a discount to florists who stock them as inventory in their coolers until they can be sold to consumers. Therefore, through the traditional supply channels, consumers often get a three to five day old bouquet.

Because we at Grower Flowers cut our flowers every day of the year, we don't have to maintain a "consumer ready" inventory. By purchasing your flowers direct from the greenhouse grower, you receive only the freshest possible product, guaranteed. The flowers you receive from our growers have been harvested within the past 24 hours, and will mature to magnificent full blooms for maximum enjoyment. Click here to send fresh flowers direct from the grower!
