Satsuki Azalea Bonsai Material
Japanese Satsuki (pronounced sat-ski) azaleas are the ultimate flowering bonsai trees. Every year without fail they put on a spectacular display of colour.
When it comes to cultivating satsuki as bonsai (in the U,K) a few simple rules need to be adhered to. As with all plants the satsuki's needs are basic and simple but unless they are met the tree will suffer. Many people have experienced problems cultivating this species in the U.K...mostly because of bad information they have received. No1 priority for satsuki is humidity. In Japan the summer air is saturated with moisture whereas in the U.K the Summer air is normally very dry.
Keeping the tree in a sheltered spot surrounded by other plants and preferably water (a pond) is really going to help the tree to do well. A major mistake often repeated is to put the tree into a greenhouse in winter, again this is normally a very dry environment. Satsuki are more than capable of dealing with a cold English winter, winter temperatures in Japan are much lower than here. Expect the tree to shed some leaves in winter. Otherwise all is simple...feed well using an organic fertiliser like Green Dream Ericaceous Bonsai Fertiliser. Twice a year water satsuki with a liquid iron supplement like Crystal Mono Iron. We recommend re-potting at the end of March and not 'after flowering' using a mix of akadama and pine bark. Our experience has proven this plan of action works very well in the U.K. Lastly in order to maintain a satsuki bonsai in good health and to develop the tree well we recommend removing all of the flower buds in February every third year.

This tree arrived from Japan over winter 2015. It was re-potted and is now growing very well. Obviously there is a lot of work to do and some time is required before this becomes a specimen bonsai tree. However it has all the right ingredients to become an amazing bonsai tree.
Flowers are pink and white,very attractive!

Planted in a terracotta nursery pot.
20" high from the top of it's bonsai pot. 29" wide overall. Massive 10" diameter nebari.
