Starter Bonsai Trees

We have the Finest Selection Of Starter Bonsai Trees for you if you wish to grow your bonsai from scratch - and some people do. Sowing from seed is one way of making bonsai from scratch but this can be a long tedious process. The other approach is to use young trees and shrubs which are already established, so you have a head start to begin with.  This is how we at Herons make most of our hardy bonsai and these "Starters" are the ideal material for your bonsai journey. Watch Peter's YouTube videos to see what can be achieved in just a few minutes with just some wire and pruninng.

Most of the varieties offered here are hardy and easy to grow. They are also very popular on our workshops. The conifers in particular are very easy to wire into recognisable bonsai shapes and are extremely hardy. They don't even need protection from the frosts.
The ones on special offer are very good value.
