In this workshop our bonsai specialist Jason Harrow will give a demonstration and then work with you to properly repot one Bonsai tree. Jason will also discuss the importance of good substrates, container considerations, as well as how to properly prune roots and position your tree correctly.

Bonsai trees and pots will be available for purchase on site but you can also bring your own plants and pots.

  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Please arrive a few minutes early.

Included with Workshop Registration:

  • Hands-on guidance repotting your bonsai (90 minutes)
  • Bonsai soil, tools, mesh & wire for the repotting process.

Bring Yours or Buy at GSCO:

  • Bonsai Tree: Allowing people to pick a bonsai that speaks to them personally is critical, and in this class we want participants to focus on improving their technique while also getting through some of their seasonal work. We have a good selection of Bonsai & Pre-Bonsai available at the store if you are looking for new material.
  • Bonsai Pot: Same as the tree, we all have color and shape preferences that are important. The store has a large variety of pots to choose from if you’re looking for a new bonsai pot.
  • Premium Soil: Additional bonsai soil mixes and substrates are available for purchase based on the type and size of the tree. Jason’s pre-mixed Bonsai soil is included in this workshop!

Unless otherwise specified, all students should meet under the shade structure, outside the greenhouse. It’s right beside the outdoor bonsai section, you can’t miss it!
