Our physical store is located at 3 Muscat Lane South, Nova Constantia in Cape Town and we welcome visitors during our trading hours.

We do offer courses and workshops, but due to the current Covid social distancing requirements, we have had to postpone as each participant is guided individually during the pruning, wiring and potting process. Follow our social media and blog for updates.

Please bring your tree in for free advice, try and bring it as soon as possible as we can often help an ailing bonsai. Do not repot or fertilise a sick bonsai. Ask for help before it’s too late.

Sunlight requirements vary from species to species. We suggest that each tree gets at least 3-4 hours direct sunlight per day, this will ensure your tree remains healthy.

Repotting and styling are integral to maintaining a healthy tree. We do encourage bonsai growers to maintain their own tree, but we can assist where necessary. Please bring your tree to our nursery, based in Constantia, during our trading hours for further advice or care. We ask that you deliver your tree and allow a weeks waiting period, so that we can repot, trim and give your tree the necessary care it needs.
