Yew Bonsai Tree
Item code: Y2
Yew Bonsai Tree
From: £ 19.00
This is a one off Yew Bonsai Tree that has been planted in a plastic pot approximately 29-31cm tall. Made by Peter in a YouTube video.

Common yew is native to Europe, Iran and north Africa. It is a hardy outdoor, evergreen tree that has become a popular bonsai.

They are fairly unfussy and will grow in sun or shade. Yew has lovely dark green foliage, and new shoots grow easily from old wood and the material is easy to train into bonsai. If the yew is outside during colder weather it is not unusual for the leaves to turn a golden colour we call it winter blush. This does not harm the tree and the leaves will turn green again in the spring.

Water regularly throughout the growing season, giving more water in summer. Although the soil should never be allowed to dry out completely in winter, do not allow it to become too wet as the combination of waterlogged soil and frost can damage yew roots.

Please Note: The appearance of the tree may vary depending on the season. Please note that measurements given are approximate not exact. Measurements are from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree,
 

Care of Indoor Bonsai
Indoor Bonsai are not difficult to look after.
These are the Basic care requirements

———— Location ————
Bright airy room with lots of light. Try to keep it in direct sunlight if possible. We suggest a window sill as the best position away from any heat sources (Central heating, Radiator)

———— Temperature ————
Keep in a cool room -10-15C best for most Indoor varieties (Elm, Ilex, Podocarpus, Citrus, Pepper, Olive, Pomegranate, Loropetalum, Buxus, Sageretia ). These varieties do not like a warm room. If the room is too warm, they dry out quickly and their leaves get weak and straggly.  The Elm can in fact be grown outdoors all year round as it is an indoor or outdoor bonsai.

10-15 C - Ideal for most Indoor bonsai
15-20 C - Ideal for Ficus, Jade, Serissa and Carmona

———— Watering ————
Watering is the key to keeping the bonsai alive. If you forget to water for a few days, the tree could die.
Keep soil damp at all times but not soggy wet
Spray the leaves occasionally to create humidity.

———— Pruning Shoots ————
Prune new growth regularly to maintain the shape of the bonsai.
If you don't prune often the tree will lose its shape and become straggly.
Prune when new shoots grow which is normally in Spring and Summer.

———— Pruning Roots or Re-potting ————
Re-pot or root prune only when the tree gets pot bound,
Usually every two or three years.
Spring is the best time for doing this.
Prune enough roots off to make space for new soil.

———— Feeding ————
Feed once a month during the growing season usually Spring- Summer.
Use liquid or pellet fertiliser.

* We do our best to get all orders out in a timely fashion and you will normally receive your goods within a few days.
