Customer Comments

"I would just like to take the time to compliment you on the quality of the plants. My parents came to you in the week leading up to Christmas and bought a Pinus sylvestris 'Dels Dwarf' seeding from you. This I received for Christmas, and it is a brilliant plant, really good quality. I find it difficult to find the more unusual Conifers now." - January 2024

"It's the best bonsai shop I've seen that's close to Birmingham. They have many different bonsai, for beginners to advanced. The prices are reasonable, the staff were very helpful and friendly. It's well worth a visit, I will definitely be returning." TN via Facebook - October 2023

"David's a real top guy, knows everything to do with bonsai and horticulture and has won multiple RHS gold medals, has a wide range of trees for all price ranges (and no I don't work for him, he's just genuinely a great guy). If you want something in particular just ask him as he sometimes has other stock out the back that's not yet on display. Mame/shohin selection is brilliant too." MW via Facebook - October 2023
