Yamadori & Raw Material

In this section of the web site we offer a selection of raw material suitable for training and development as bonsai. These trees come from ethical and 100% legal sources including direct imports, private collections, landscape and forest clearance projects as well as field grown stock and commercial producers. All of our Yamadori and Raw Material is established for a minimum of two full calendar years and NOTHING is offered for sale that we are not 100% happy with in relation to it's health and vitality. Because we are a working nursery this material will be constantly improved. At times a tree may have had some work that is not reflected in the listing, keeping up to date with close to 3000 trees is tough! In this case we will make you aware before we ship your order, though it is rare.

It's been 12 years now since we shipped our first bonsai tree. In that time Kaizen Bonsai have shipped literally thousands of plants both large and small all over Europe and have NEVER had a single loss. You can be entirely sure the tree you select will be packaged and delivered with skill and care. Shipping bonsai trees is entirely at our risk so any damage will be compensated for by us. However in the last 12 years we have never had to return a customers money, we do a good job!

"Just to say thank you for receipt of the Cotoneaster which was delivered today as promised. Delighted with the tree, which was really well packed and for the excellent service provided."  D.H - U.K

"...thank you for the superb crab apple bonsai. Though its images on the internet were good, the real tree put the images to shame! " E.H - U.K
