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 bought this as a gift for my husband's birthday. The tree is lovely, it's leaves and branches intact and super healthy. I know I will be purchasing from Brussels Bonsai in the future. So, so happy with this purchase!

Harland Boxwood Purchase.
Ordering process was quick and easy. Order shipped next day. Arrived on time. The plant was expertly packaged for shipping and looked great after unwrapping. Finally the Bonsai looked better than the photo, larger than I thought it would be for the price, great buy. Certainly would recommend to my friends. You guys are the best.

I thought looking at the catalogue, this Bonsai tree, was a little expensive. Now, that I have it & see what I received, I would have paid more !!

Harland Boxwood is a Great Addition to the Forest
I was excited to receive my order of the new Harland Boxwood. It was very securely wrapped in the box, but easily removed and in-wrapped. My Boxwood was in great shape, very fresh and green. The Bonsai soil was moist and in great shape in a very attractive Bonsai pot. I would recommend also ordering the 13" humidity tray, unless you already possess one. The Harland Boxwood is very attractive and will be a low maintenance addition to my Bonsai collection. A good choice for outdoor gardening, in moderate winter areas. I live in North Carolina. I think Brussel's leads the way in cultivation and distribution of Bonsai trees. They are adept at adding new offerings to their catalog, such as the Harland Boxwood.
