Specialists in Bonsai Trees, Care and Information - Kaizen Bonsai
Sunrise on 2017
Whilst 2016 may well have been our best year ever it looks like the coming year will be even better. Your support over the last couple of years has been simply astonishing and as a result we are reaching new heights I never thought possible. Over the last year we have processed over 6500 orders and sent lots of lovely things to almost every country in the world. Last year we sold over 1500 trees and a great many of those were very impressive bonsai we had been working on for decades. Already this year you have placed close to 1400 orders including close to 10 tons of soils and nearly 2 tons of fertilisers. I still remember stressing over buying 10 bags of akadama at a time back when we got started. Today I am still stressing but the numbers are much larger. As well as fulfilling over 20 orders a day, seven days a week, we have been on our annual trip to the outstanding Noelanders exhibition in Belgium, a great success for us this year, which was very quickly followed by a massive buying trip.
The net result of all this frantic activity is that we can do lots of cool things. It's amazing how much work and money it takes to bring new products to the market but that's the order of business here now. Already recently we have overhauled our Green Dream Fertiliser range and added two new products that are sorely needed, Green Dream Nitro + and Green Dream Soil Source have been well received and are outselling our expectations. We are very much looking forward to everyones feedback on those. Whilst we have decided to cut back on a lot of our less well selling products and have been forced to drop a few others because of increasing prices our progressively slimmed down and improved range will include some very cool and useful items like our new T-Kerf power carving tools and a significantly expanded range of Saburrtooth carving burrs. There's lots more to come too!
My spring buying trip for this years tree stock resulted in close to 500 trees in every shape and size you can imagine. We also secured some absolutely top drawer yamadori and some trees styled by a few of Europe's leading bonsai artists. We have, literally, a lorry load of European yamadori due in within a few days, there are also some beautiful Italian yamadori bonsai, Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian and Korean bonsai and more flowering bonsai than I have ever seen. We also have some impressive bonsai coming from a few private collections that are in the pipeline. Over the winter I have styled a few dozen trees and Kevin Willson is busy with a small but very beautiful number of scots pines that will be released in the summer. I have close to 400 new trees here that are currently being prepared for sale over summer.
There are still only three of us here and so we are prone to getting a bit behind so please bear with us, we are doing our very best. Running a tight ship enables us to keep our prices keen and still have the best bonsai offering anywhere in the world. Catherine and I sincerely thank you all for your continued support and are looking forward to another year taking the best care of you that we can.
