|Our Special Bonsai of the Month:
SOLD - Another fine specimen coming shortly...
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.

Description: This month's Bonsai has been chosen by Liana specifically as Willow Leaf Figs have unique, naturally small leaves and are very easy care. Willow Leaf Figs are not native to Australia but adapt extremely well to our Perth Climate. They tolerate hot, dry summer conditions by storing moisture in their trunks. They adapt to very sunny conditions by growing small leaves. They are long lived and resistant to most pests in our gardens. Basically these Bonsai are perfect for anyone as they don’t need special care above normal garden watering, feeding and trimming. Although this Bonsai is not styled in any special way, it is in perfect form to allow its new owner to continue styling and care.
Your responsibility for this Bonsai will be:
1. Must live outside in semi sunny conditions throughout the year.
2. Must be watered every day from October to May.
3. Must be trimmed from Spring to Autumn.
All Bonsai Palace Bonsai are presented with a Bonsai Birth Certificate and detailed care instructions. Also, we offer a free ‘feed and groom’ for each Bonsai within three months of purchase. Just visit Liana at the Palmyra Market on a Sunday for free Bonsai advice.
MONTH'S PRICE FOR THIS EXQUISITE BONSAI IS ONLY $159.00...!
Please note that due to Government
quarantine regulations we cannot ship Bonsai and
soil products outside our state of Western
Australia at this time...
