News From The Blog

Going Around in Circles

Our fragile existence seems to be an exercise in going around in circles. At this particular moment in time some would have us believe we are circling the plughole..............

Easy Bonsai. Seriously!

Recently I have spent too much time ranting and raving about things unrelated to bonsai. I assume that’s why lots of my loyal readers come here, to find out something about little trees..............

Thank You!

Life leads us down a winding path on occasion. I was never the most social of animals, us Norfolk folk are renowned for our reticence. However I did not really expect I would end up quite so isolated behind this screen...............

Hand in Pocket Time

I don’t get out much but from what little I do see, in some parts I understand times are hard. I do know we are all being...............

Shohin Bonsai Available

Lots of shohin available now. Not cheap but mostly good quality and nice pots. Email for details and include pic’s please..............

Trees, Trees, Trees

Since Brexit became a reality our esteemed leaders have introduced some pointless draconian laws that make it (probably) easier to bring nuclear weapons into the UK than it does plants. Therefore it’s no longer possible for KB to bring in the 1500-2000 plants a year we were doing for a long time.............

Ranting and Raving

Oscar Wilde wrote “I know y’all missed me ranting and raving. So, apropos of nothing other than my own therapy here are my thoughts, revelations and reminiscences for the Easter holidays based on my year so far. Should pass a little time if you are stuck in a traffic cue or airport. No need to comment .............

With Age Comes Wisdom….Or Not

Oscar Wilde wrote “With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone.” Turns out he was right. Scientists have found that growing older is no guarantee of growing wiser, if wisdom is an intuitive knack for grasping basic beneficial behaviours. I’m not sure why it was necessary to be a scientist to figure that one out.............

NEW! Japanese Made Quality Stoneware Bonsai Pots

Nobody makes quality products quite like the Japanese. Quality materials, passion and attention to detail are a given when purchasing Japanese manufactured goods. For the discerning bonsai enthusiast that demands a little more than the next guy, we are pleased to offer this range of bonsai ceramics not seen in the UK for decades.

Graham got fed up with sub-standard ceramics and poor quality and so we have stepped up and imported these exceptional value Japanese bonsai pots. Whilst they may not be the quality of artisan-made and signed 'Tokoname' bonsai pots they are absolutely the best quality available at anything up to two or three times the price.

High fired vitreous stoneware is supremely frost resistant. We feel the consistency, high-quality finish, adaptable colours and attractive design of these pots coupled with amazingly good prices make the range unbeatable.

Kaizen Bonsai Soil Mixes

It's been nearly 20 years since Graham first offered his special bonsai soil mixes for sale. Since that time these products have become the UK's favourite typically selling over 25 tons every year. These soil products are constantly refined and improved as better ingredients present themselves and represent the very best in quality, value and performance for bonsai tree growth in the UK today. Considering the ever-increasing cost of Japanese soils and the sensitive issue of fuel usage we have now sourced 90% of our blended soils within the U.K which means less 'soil miles', less import taxes and a lower price to you!
