Japanese Black Pine Stock

Sold out? Don't despair, grow your own with our limited edition kit.

Only available to South African customers.


I usually release some of my Japanese Black Pine stock at the beginning of summer (seedings) and older plants at the end of the growing season, during winter. These plants have been grown by myself, from seed purchased from reputable sources in Kinashi, Japan thus they are guaranteed to be the species as claimed.

My process

All 1 year and older stock has been grown from seedling cuttings for the best possible nebari. This also results in a very short stem length till the first actively growing buds making them idea for mame and shohin sized trees which can be grown in a much shorter space of time than the medium and larger size bonsai.

Read more about my process here.

While plants are in my care they are fed copious amounts of BonsaiBoost, fed weekly alternating with Seagro, Sea Secret and Kelpak to stimulate strong roots. Monthly fungicide treatments are applied, alternating between Copper Oxychloride, Chronos and Unizeb.


Seedlings less than 1 years of age are sold loose, without growing medium in a plastic bag with damp sphagnum moss. Each 1 year and older plant is sold in its container with growing medium, which is watered thoroughly and then plastic wrapped prior to shipping.

Further Reading

The techniques for growing Black pine are almost identical to Red Pines. Read more about this species here. 

Seedling images are depictions only of the average size and development of sale stock. Other photos are examples of Japanese red pine which I have grown from seed.

    My first Black Pines

    Thank you Terry for taking the trouble to provide me with 3 seedlings. I am treating with kid gloves until they are established. Best Bonsai site to deal with.

    Healthy, strong seedlings

    I ordered 10 Black Pine seedlings, which arrived in three days - bare rooted, well packed with damp spaghnum. The roots were extensive and in good condition, and the plants were carefully packed and well padded in a small box. Would definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for Japanese Black Pine in South Africa
