Our Story


NEBG began life as a single rented greenhouse way back in 1987.

Today, it’s a sprawling eight-acre nursery in Bellingham, MA, complete with eight separate greenhouses and the largest Bonsai Tree & Supply collection on the East Coast.

We’ve come a long way.

Loves Us


On top of growing our own trees from seed, we regularly import trees and cuttings from all across Asia and source Bonsai from domestic growers on the West Coast and Florida. Once they arrive, they’re meticulously cared for by our expert staff in our state-of-the-art facility under the watchful eye of Bonsai Master Jun Imabayashi.

We have what we believe to be the most comprehensive and beautiful collection of bonsai trees in the nation (Martha Stewart agrees), making New England Bonsai Gardens the premier destination for Bonsai in the United States.

Our tool, pot and supply selections are equally extensive ~ if we don’t have it, you don’t need it.

Trees and supplies aside, educating the public about Bonsai has always been very important to us, so NEBG regularly hosts a wide variety of bonsai experts for training sessions and workshops, and we offer entry level beginner courses for those looking to get into the hobby.

We’re equally proud to be the exclusive site host for The Kaikou School of Bonsai, a two-year program headed by John Romano that focuses on intensive bonsai study and practice.

We also have over 2,000 active New England Bonsai Gardens Members who enjoy member benefits like access to special events and product discounts.

Everyone here takes tremendous pride in our dedication to respecting The Art of Bonsai, and it’s our hope that our love and dedication to this art form is translated through our trees, facility and staff.

We would love for you to come to New England Bonsai Gardens and experience these amazing pieces of Living Art for yourself. It’s very difficult not to be moved when you’re in the presence of such artistry, and we know you’d enjoy your time here.
