It has taken Graham thirty years to perfect our unique soil mixes, a process that continues every day. It's possible that a third or more of the bonsai trees in the UK are planted in our soil products, we sell hundreds of tons a year. We don't sell hastily composed mixes that are untested. Please respect this effort and dedication and don't ask for the recipe.
