Willowbog Bonsai Nursery


Whilst our reputation was built on supplying good, reasonably priced, raw material for bonsai from mainly local sources, we have long since expanded upon that to include top quality European yamadori as well as high quality Japanese stock.

More recent developments have seen bonsai created from native and naturalised tree species featuring more strongly on the sales benches. These are in the main coming from private collections being reduced or dispersed.

In addition we are always prepared to consider the use of part exchange in the acquisition of better or different additional trees by the enthusiast. Our stock of several hundred trees is continually changing.


Willowbog Nursery is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm
Other times by appointment – please get in touch.


Willowbog, for me, is the epitome of Bonsai excellence, attracting some of the best Bonsai Masters in Europe and the USA, having the training facilities to match.
Bonsai education is right at the top of Peter & Jeans “tree” along with holding some of the best quality material in the country to buy and work on.
20 years a loyal student, attending many, many workshops with the masters!
