Bonsai Tree Fertilizer Containers

Pack Size
7 items left

When you place fertilizer, whether it be organic or chemical granules, directly onto the surface around your bonsai tree you will stunt the growth of moss or even kill it. 

These plastic fertilizer covers are designed to hold whatever fertilizer you wish to provide to your bonsai trees, elevating the fertilizer from the surface of your soil. This reduces the negative effect the fertilizer has on the moss.

The lid enables you to pour your fertilizer into the receptacle and close it, preventing it from being eaten by birds, rats or other animals.

The fertilizer holders are riddled with holes on the top, sides and bottom; through which water can flow and carry trace amounts of your fertilizer with to the bonsai tree's roots. Although these holes will allow water through it will prevent granules of fertilizer from being washed away. However fine, powder type of water soluble fertilizers will be washed away and are not actually designed to be applied in this manner.

The brown fertilizer covers are manufactured from a plastic which will withstand the strong sun and its UV rays, here in South Africa. The colour makes it blend aesthetically as well.

Review of Bonsai Tree Fertilizer Containers

I have used these containers for more than 18 months up in Gauteng. They are extremely durable and functional. They show no sign of degrading or weathering. They are very aesthetically pleasing. I would definitely recommend using it.

These containers are just wonderful! My yorkies can no longer steal (and eat!) my Bonsai Boost! Was also rather weary of being asked why I have tea bags in my pots. Seriously, a sensible purchase - now I just need to get more!

UV resistant and African sun.

I did not used any other baskets to compare them to. I was so impress with the product that I bought another 3 packets end of 2017.

UV resistant and African sun.

Bought the fertilizer baskets 2 years ago when they first became available. The plastic became brittle and does not seem to be UV ray resistant to the Zululand sun. After being used for 2 years in full sun with summer temperature in the mid 40 degrees the baskets became so brittle that they disintegrate when they are opened for refills

Hello Hendrik, I am truly sorry this has been your experience. Have you used any other baskets which have held up to the sun after the same period?

Bonsai Tree Fertilizer Containers

I found the containers very handy in keeping my Bonsaiboost fertilizer sachets out of reach of birds and other nocturnal vermin. Their appearance is also pleasing.
