Growing tips:

Location : Accustomed to the Mediterranean climate, forysthia should be placed in full sun all year round. Still, protect it from the bright sun in summer. 

Watering : Forsythia needs a substrate that is always moist for good health. However, water your tree regularly while allowing the root ball to dry out slightly between waterings to avoid excess water. Indeed, underwatering or overwatering is not necessarily advantageous for the good health of your bonsai. So take the time to manage it well.

Important : Do not hesitate to water the entire root ball up to the roots, materially, the water will drain through the holes present under the pot or bathe the tree in water (drenching) for a few minutes, to be sure to water well up to the roots. We do not recommend putting a bowl or container under your pot because the water will stagnate and can cause root rot.  (Too much water = asphyxiation).

In spring/summer, watering should be done regularly. In hot weather, it's every day ! On the other hand, in winter, water according to the soil monitoring you do. Thanks to the rain and cold, you won't necessarily need to water regularly since the substrate will remain moist.

Caution : during flowering, do not water the flowers as they may lose them.

Substrate and repotting: In the nursery, we use potting soil composed of black peat, blond peat, eco-aged, topsoil, horse manure and pozzolana. You can adapt your substrate very well by mixing it with more draining substrate such as : akadama, pumice ..

Forysthia is a fast-growing species, so repot every yearin autumn or winter. Never do this during flowering.

Size : Pruning is done after flowering. Once the bud has developed 6 to 8 leaves, leave two.

Fertilization: In the nursery, we use blue tomato/flower fertilizer NPK 12 12 17. It is a perfect fertilizer as a nutrient supplement. Put a handful on the substrate (small or large depending on the size of the pot) from spring, so from May to October, every 2 months for a good growth of your tree.

Do not fertilize during the flowering period.

All our bonsai are unique. That's why they're referenced by numbers. These do not indicate the age of the tree. If you would like to know more about it, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to let you know its approximate age. 

We ship bonsai throughout France and neighbouring countries that are part of the EU. 

We take care to pack each bonsai in custom-made wooden crates or reinforced cartons . The tree is well protected and tied to prevent any risk of breakage.

Depending on the size and weight of your bonsai, shipping is carried out by specialized carriers: DPD (under 30kg) or GEODIS (+30kg).

Our priority is that the delivery of your bonsai goes smoothly. For this reason, shipments are rarely made on weekends and never during heat waves, to prevent your bonsai from transacting for too long. We also regularly check and verify the tracking of your packages.
