bonsaï nursery

Jacques Galinou discovered bonsai some forty years ago, initially as an importer, but he then had the opportunity to travel around Asia (China, Taiwan, Japan). During the meteoric rise of these countries, he rubbed shoulders with many nurserymen and quickly realised how difficult it was to import certain varieties. The idea then arose to sow and plant, to ensure Europe's own production!

Made in France" production

For 30 years now, all the bonsaï have been sown and grown at the nursery in Lot-et-Garonne. This company, rooted in family tradition, is continuing to develop with the arrival of its daughter, Valentine.

"In our bonsai nursery, we see ourselves first and foremost as farmers with horticultural training. We are growers, and that's what sets us apart from other bonsai professionals. We prefer to develop local production, from seedlings or cuttings.

This allows us to have total control over what we do as well as having perfectly acclimatised trees when they come to your home."
Vidéo Galinou

Many of the trees in the nursery have been grown in the ground for years, giving them time to develop a good-sized trunk and carpenter branches.

On the few hectares under cultivation, production is quite diversified. Maples (Palmatum, Kyohime, Tridents, Shishigashira, Kotohime, Pourprea, Orange dream, etc.), black pines, white pines, junipers, oaks, myrtles, loropetalums, Chinese elms, olive trees, azaleas and meta-sequoias.

The nursery also offers a wide range of garden trees!

"Whether you're a beginner or an experienced bonsaika, we're bound to have a bonsai that you'll love and that will look great in your home."
