Bonsai Basics: How to fertilise your bonsai

It’s important to keep bonsais well-fed
Normal trees use their long roots to absorb nutrients; bonsais are too small to do this

– Indoor & Outdoor:
Feed indoor bonsais all-year round
Feed outside bonsais during the growing season (early spring until mid-autumn)

– Growing season:
All trees (except for pines and Junipers which should be fed in winter) should be fed monthly throughout the growing season with a specific bonsai fertiliser

If you’re still unsure of what to do, your local GCA garden centre will be able to provide you with expert advice.
