Specimen Bonsai Trees

The UK's Finest Selection of Specimen Bonsai Trees

At Herons, we have a large number of high quality Specimen Bonsai trees. Our collection of Specimens has been built up over the past thirty or so years that Herons has been running - and even longer if you include the time when Peter was winning Chelsea Gold medals, before Herons Bonsai was founded.

Specimens are the high quality trees that you see at exhibitions. They are certainly not run of the mill bonsai and as such they have a high intrinsic value. The price or value of a Specimen is determined by the beauty, rarity of the species and to a certain extent age. It is not dependent on size or age as is commonly thought.

If you are interested in any of the specimens shown here, give us a ring to find out more (delivery of the larger trees may be possible to certain areas). We do not always post prices on the website for security reasons.
