Outdoor bonsai include evergreen varieties like pines and junipers as well as deciduous varieties like maples and elms. All outdoor bonsai are hardy and require seasonal change. Upon receiving your bonsai, it is best to acclimate it in a shady area for one week. All outdoor bonsai prefer morning sun and afternoon shade. Patios, decks and balconies are great areas to display your bonsai during the growing season. Outdoor bonsai can be displayed indoors, but only for short periods of time. You should never leave your bonsai inside for more than five days.
Watering properly is critical to maintaining a healthy bonsai! Outdoor bonsai are watered according to the season. Outdoor bonsai should be watered daily in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter you will not need to water as frequently. However, you should never let your bonsai’s soil dry out. Water your bonsai properly by using a watering can or hose attachment that has a fine-spray nozzle. You should thoroughly soak your bonsai’s soil. Water should be running out of the drain holes. Misting foliage periodically is recommended, but should not be considered watering. General care is also important to maintaining a beautiful bonsai. Bonsai should be periodically trimmed to keep their miniature shape. To best understand trimming and wiring techniques, we recommend purchasing an instructional book.
Your bonsai will need to be repotted every four to five years. It is necessary to repot your bonsai when its root system becomes pot bound. Repotting outdoor bonsai should be done before new growth appears during late winter or early spring. Make sure you are using a good bonsai soil when repotting since regular potting soil will compact and inhibit proper drainage. We recommend waiting at least one growing season before repotting your bonsai to make sure it is well established.
Fertilizing bonsai is required. Most water-soluble and time-released fertilizers work very well when used as directed. We recommend using slow-releasing organic fertilizers for more mature specimen bonsai.
INSECTS & DISEASES
Insects and diseases can attack bonsai just like any other plant. Inspect your bonsai regularly. A brisk spraying of the trunk and foliage periodically will help keep your tree clean. If any problems appear, most garden centers have products available for treatment.
Outdoor bonsai need to experience winter dormancy and should remain outdoors in the winter. Nevertheless, the root systems of outdoor bonsai need protection from extreme winter weather. You should “Heel-In” your bonsai by covering the pot and soil with pine needles or mulch when temperatures approach freezing. We also recommend protecting your bonsai from extremely cold winds by placing it against the south side of your house. In areas that have extremely cold winters, bonsai can be protected in garages, sheds, cold frames or basements. Contact a local bonsai club for more advice.
Rest assured that your tree will reach its destination well hydrated and securely packed. The base of each tree is wrapped in plastic to retain moisture and to prevent any topsoil from spilling during shipment. Trees are wired to the pot, placed inside a double-walled carton for protection and secured with proprietary packing systems to keep them from shifting during transit.

I ordered the flowering quince because both the picture in the ad and the description was for the variety, Scarlet Storm. Was I got was a white/pink single bloom
Toyo-Nishiki. I have a Toyo Nishiki quince, so I was disappointed.

This tree is a real beauty! It arrived promptly and in excellent condition. I ordered several types of bonsais for Christmas, and this one seems especially sturdy in our weird winter weather this year. We live at 7100 feet with nights in the 20s, sunny days in the 50’s with very low humidity/precipitation.The leaves look healthy and the tree is sprouting several gorgeous blossoms. Even for a beginner, this tree is easy to care for and is quite stunning!

Tree was sent to wrong address and by the time I received most of leaves and blooms were in the bottom of the shipping container. Hope the tree lives.

I received my Flowering Quince a few days ago and blooms have just blossomed. They are so beautiful and I'm thrilled to have the plant blooming for Christmas. We live in Florida in a tropical zone, so I don't know if this is unusual, but I'm thrilled nonetheless. Had originally intended this item as a gift, but when it arrived I liked it too much to give away. Merry Christmas to me!

Sent as a gift and the recipients love the plant. It arrived in good condition already blooming. Thank you!
