The "Squat Pot Stumps" link includes many varieties of bonsai material as well as some miscellaneous stumps when available. All will have been root washed, sawed flat, and potted in a squat pot nursery container. Branching has been cleaned out. This is premium material, grown for bonsai. This special material is now available all year.

THE GROWING GROUNDS- your most trusted internet source of professional, quality grown and maintained bonsai in the USA. Real trees grown for bonsai, most for over 15 yrs, no "twigs in pots" called BONSAI here. Questions? Just ask!

I closed off commercial bulk sales last year. Seems most times in spring the 24ft truck appears to haul away alot of the harvested stock for that year. Business goal here is to supply those without decent material/bonsai to all areas of the USA. I remember the old days when material alone was very hard to find and when you did, it was marginal at best. Times have changed my bonsai friends.

The Growing Grounds is a fully licensed/inspected bonsai nursery able to ship legally to all States and territories. I hear ya Hawaii and California!

 

I will be accepting credit/debit cards again real soon. I accepted these for 14 yrs but due to the economy, most paid cash so I got rid of the cards and the FEES... Recent times have made accepting cards far more fair to all so look for the posted noticed of their acceptance here again for payment.

I am moving the nursery to squat pot nursery containers with few to be potted in bonsai pots in the coming years. This makes for a faster growing tree once it is harvested and placed on the bench- great for developing branches and foliage- faster. All root systems are worked, same as for a bonsai pot. Soil is a nursery mix with quality sifted stone added and the tree is tied to the pot. So look for the squat pot trees, lower $, same great root system as potted bonsai and very easy to move to a bonsai container.
