Here's the perfect place to start if you want to cultivate your own bonsai and enjoy this ancient and fascinating horticultural art form. This Brush Cherry - Syzygium has been trained by skilful cultivation into perfect miniature form. Already fully established in its own decorative plasticplanter this beautiful little tree will provide an instant focal point to any well lit room. It may even treat you to white flowers in spring, followed by red fruits in the autumn!
Syzygium are native to Australia and New Zealand and are particularly well suited to bonsai culture, readily branching and forming impressive gnarled trunks as they age. They're easy to care for needing only a light trim each autumn to encourage branching. Water well as the compost becomes dry but avoid the tree standing in water. Feed occasionally with bonsai feed and your tree should thrive and last a lifetime or more!
Your tree will enjoy a summer holiday on a table outdoors, but be careful to keep it watered.
