Your Canadian Bonsai Store
Where our Passion meets yours.
Shop with confidence, now serving from two locations in Canada. One in Edmonton, Alberta and the second from Brampton, Ontario.
Customs blend bonsai mix made up of a combination of high quality mineral stones including Zeolite, pumice and lava rocks.
With multiple sievings the amount of fine particles in the substrate has been minimized. This provides a standard particle size, prevents accumulation of silt in the root area and sustains long-lasting capillary action.
Zeolite maintains the ideal pH balance to allow for healthy plant growth. Zeolite absorbs and hold nutrients and water but allows plant roots to absorb the dissolved nutrients from the Zeolite for their growth. Macro- and micronutrients remain permanently available. There is no wastage of fertilizer through leaching.
Package weight 1 kg. sufficient for a regular 7 inch pot.

"Passion is the biggest determinant of a grower's success"
Bonsai was a passion, which was sparked at a very young age of 12, when I used to go out with my uncle to collect specimens. The beauty of the trees sitting in their pots, small yet majestic grew over me through the years and completely engulfed me in their magnificence.

I am a Botanist and a certified Horticulturist. I have been living my dream with plants for the last 25 years. Having now settled down in Alberta, the love affair with the “tree in the pot” continues.....
