As the name implies, bone meal comes from ground up animal bones. Bone meal adds a source of phosphorus to the garden soil, which helps plants build a strong root system along with increased flower and fruit development. Bonemeal also increases the beneficial soil microbes that encourage plant growth. The result? A healthier, more prolific plant that all gardeners love. ...

Bonsai eye candy!

Bonsai Empire
Goshin is quite literally the most well-recognized Bonsai in the United States, which would put it pretty high in the running for most recognized world-wide. Even among Japanese professionals at the highest level, ‘Goshin’ is a familiar bonsai.

When it comes to Bonsai recognition, unforgettability (possibly not a real word) is king, followed by age. At this point in its life, Goshin has both in spades. As if that wasn’t enough, it was also created by Mr. John Yoshio Naka, Legendary American Bonsai artist and the man credited with a vast majority of the spread of Bonsai culture throughout the Americas. This is a one of a kind bonsai.

Well it's finally official...The Orchard has collaborated with Clynt Levin and Alan Grant of Legacy Bonsai nursery and garden centre. Now you will have a place to purchase my stock in the week too. I am stocking the shade house by the Legacy academy with my range of fruit trees and edible plants. I have a large range of fruit trees from citrus to berries. Watch this space, it will only get better from here....Signage to come soon😘 ...

What a glorious sound of rolling thunder and pouring rain over these past couple days. Much needed.....but crazy amounts have been falling. If the continued rain doesn't allow the soil of your bonsai to dry out for a long period of time, or if the organic soil being used is failing to drain quickly enough, trees can be given shelter under other larger bonsai, landscape trees or against the side of outbuildings. Pots can also be tipped to one side to allow faster draining through one of the drain holes at the either end of the pot. Note that some bonsai pots will only have drain holes in the middle of the base; tipping these will have the reverse effect and will leave the roots sat in pools of water trapped at the base of the pot. ...
