Bonsai Tree Soil

bonsai soil mix, akadama soil, best bonsai soil for bonsai plants online

The essential property of any bonsai tree soil is that it drains freely and allows air to circulate around the roots of the tree to keep them healthy.  A bonsai soil mix that does not drain well will not allow the roots to breathe and can result in root rot and poor bonsai plant health. 
Old, compacted bonsai compost should be replaced at the appropriate time of the year for the tree to be repotted.  Most bonsai tree soil has a very low nutrient value and that means that feeding can be managed and controlled  better. 

Do not use the bonsai soil mix that has been removed from the bonsai plant.  The addition of mycorrhizal fungi has massive benefits when introducing new bonsai potting soil to trees and actively helps the trees re-establish quickly. 
We have a basic repotting guide available for download in our bonsai care section and we also offer free advise on what kind of bonsai soil will suit your tree best
