|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
This is Liana's special
Bonsai, one which she personally feels is worthy
of note because it is a promising specimen,
excellent value, and shows character.

Melaleuca incana (Grey Honey Myrtle 2010)

A few years back I was given an old Kurrajong tree by a friend who said that he collected seeds in Shark Bay and grew them to make Bonsai, whilst never ‘getting around to it’. He hoped I could save it and continue the journey. I studied the species, planted it in the correct soil and created this beautiful, twisted trunk Bonsai with accessory plants surrounding it. I’ve grown this baby on and added more native trees. I am very happy to pass this one of a kind beauty to a new owner, so please select it only if you can provide outdoor conditions.
Trees native to our climate and soils make great Bonsai as they don’t require extremely modified living environments. For this Bonsai you will need to keep it outdoors where it gets several hours of bright sunshine and daily water. Regular snipping with scissors will help maintain the shape and regular feeding with a mild, organic fertilizer will maintain the soil
If you are not sure of your responsibility for our Bonsai Of the Month, please note:
1. Must live outside with bright sunshine and real ‘weather’ conditions.
2. Must be watered regularly, most likely once a day in summer and once per week in July 2020. The Kurrajong is deciduous but won’t quite lose it’s leaves totally.
3. Very little trimming is needed.
4. Native Osmocote fertilizer in spring, dilute powerfeed to maintain soil activity.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ tag for each Bonsai for ongoing support within three months of purchase. Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
