Information on how Kaizen Bonsai soil products are described, graded & packaged
Absolutely the best quality horticultural bark available. This bark is 100% British pine bark, hand picked, shredded and graded. This bark is fairly dry and so is very easy to sieve further to refine the particle size you require. It is the cleanest, lightest, warmest and most long lived organic growing medium ingredient. Use straight from the bag and mix up to 30% with any of our other products to promote warmth, aeration and assist you in moving those large pots around. Can be re-used several times. In trials over more than ten years absolutely everything planted in this bark has responded positively to its presence. Has practically no inherent nutriment so should be used alongside a good quality organic fertilizer like Green Dream.
Do your bonsai a big favour!
Bark is a natural product. There WILL be some variation in this material from time to time. Our photograph is representative of what we currently have in stock. However, although there is some variation the performance of this bark in cultivating bonsai is outstanding.
5-15mm mesh graded to produce an approximate particle size close to this range.
5-15mm particle size which means all of the particles will pass through a 15mm square (has a 21mm diagonal) sieve mesh so some pieces will be oversize in length. This bark is dried (42% moisture content when packed) and so is very easy to sieve further to refine the particle size you require. In transport some abrasion will occur producing smaller particles and dust. By volume this bark will be less than 1% dust and fines when packed.
