Why We Love It

Get bonsai-trained Zelkova serrata for your home or greenhouse for something that little bit different, and a treat for you and your plant pals.

This little bonsai tree, trained to grow in an attractive 'S'-shape, is actually a big tree in the wild but expertly managed so you can enjoy its ancient look and charm as it does it thing from the mantelpiece.

How to Plant

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, have a hand trowel and a watering tool ready, plus a container larger than the one your plant arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  4. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
  5. Make sure to place your plant away from any harsh drafts.
