All-inclusive Bonsai Basics Workshop (Sunday July 14, 2024)

Have you always wanted your very own bonsai tree, but don't know where to start? Are you concerned about buying a tree without knowing how to keep it alive and happy? If so, we have the perfect workshop for you!

Bonsai Basics is an All-Inclusive introductory, hands-on workshop, designed for people who are new to the art of bonsai. The 2 ½ Hour workshop covers the basics of bonsai, including:

  1. Brief history and origins of bonsai.
  2. Understanding the types of trees suitable for bonsai.
  3. The principles of bonsai design and styling.
  4. Basic techniques for planting, pruning, wiring, and repotting bonsai trees.
  5. Care and maintenance of bonsai trees, including watering, fertilizing, and pest control.

The hands-on workshop is the perfect place for beginners to demystify the art of Bonsai! Upon completing the workshop, you'll walk away with an awesome bonsai tree, but more importantly, you’ll have the confidence to care for it.

The instructor will help you select a “pre-bonsai” (a trained plant in a nursery pot), transplant, trim, prune and transform your tree. After a couple of hours, you’ll go home with an awesome Bonsai tree and a full understanding of maintenance.

All workshops are led by one of our Bonsai experts. We provide some of the happiest and healthiest Bonsai trees, and we love to share our knowledge!

What’s Included with the All-Inclusive Workshop:

  • Seasoned Instructor: Our instructors brings a wealth of knowledge, skills, and practical expertise to the table in the art and science of bonsai cultivation. They've dedicated a substantial amount of time to delve into the study, practice, and mastery of bonsai techniques.
  • Tropical Bonsai Tree: Take your pick from a curated selection of pre-bonsai. Typically, there are 2 or 3 species of trees for you to choose from, aligning with your preferences.
  • Ceramic Bonsai Pot: Customize your bonsai's home with the ability to choose from a diverse array of curated bonsai pots. However, we've got an extensive collection of over 1,000 ceramic pots, and you'll receive a $10 credit if you prefer to select something different.
  • Essential Instruments: All the tools, soil, and necessary instruments will be readily available for your use. We've got you covered to ensure a seamless and enriching bonsai experience.

What's NOT Included with the Workshop:
