Premium Bonsai Compost - Shohin Soil Mix
Small bonsai pots offer a challenging environment in which to cultivate trees. Keeping enough moisture in such a small pot without water-logging the soil is a very difficult task. Our shohin bonsai mix achieves this admirably and also has a high cation exchange capacity (nutrient retention). A large amount of moisture is held within the soil particle, whilst excess water drains away. As the soil dries moisture is released from the soil's particles to be taken up by roots. We take a GREAT deal of care and time in preparing and grading this excellent and very special soil mix. The high performance ingredients are painstakingly graded by hand to ensure the ultimate quality and consistency that, ultimately, guarantee optimum results for all trees growing in small pots.
It has taken Graham thirty years to perfect our unique soil mixes. Please respect this effort and dedication and don't ask for the recipe.
