All tree purchases include 1hr of free training with me and future support is always available by purchasing it here.


Looking for something special for your balcony or patio? Don't have too much space and want a tree which does not require a tremendous amount of work?

Junipers are one of the most suitable plant species for bonsai cultivation. Japanese bonsai professionals have invented and perfected cultivation techniques for growing these trees over centuries. Today you have the opportunity to own one of these special trees. 

There are many different juniper or "Shimpaku" species found across the world. The Sargentii variety has a very attractive adult scale foliage which is erect (as opposed to limp) and is compact and bushy (as opposed to leggy and flat or sparse). This makes it possible to create very high quality bonsai due to the dense, ramified appearance of these trees.

The new owner of this tree can continue to refine and build the foliage pads of this tree and should they wish, further expand the shari to increase the appearance of maturity.

The new owner can wire and style this tree into their vision for it. No other immediate work is required with regards to repotting.

This Shimpaku was imported in 2017 from Saitama prefecture in Japan.

Please note: There is a fine hairline crack on the side of the Tokoname container.
