Terry Erasmus cultivated these plants from seeds sourced from notable providers in Kinashi, Japan, providing assurance that they are the stated species. The same seed is also included in our Japanese black pine cultivation kits.
All plants are grown from seedling cuttings for the best possible nebari. This also results in a very short trunk length below the first buds making them ideal for mame and shohin sized trees or larger trees if you prefer. Further development ideal in colanders or ceramic containers.
Absolutely blown away with my JBP seedlings! I managed to secure 1 of Terry's amazing neagari black pines for 2020, as well as a regular large 3 year old seedling. I could not be happier. My seedlings arrived expertly packaged and were in perfect condition when they arrived in Johannesburg. His and James' attention to detail and professionalism is world class, both in the service they offer and the skills put into the growing of these pines. Terry has fast tracked my journey to future shohin JBP ownership, and I can't wait to show my pines in the next 5-8 years time.
Terry is moving SA bonsai forward in leaps and bounds, and through his efforts we have a local presence that rivals the international bonsai stage. Thank you for your ongoing support of SA bonsai!
