One of the best times of the year is here. Easter time in KZN is beautiful. If you fancy an inspiring outing this Easter weekend, stop in at Legacy Bonsai The Mushroom Farm - 450 Kassier Rd in Hillcrest. We have one of SA's largest, most beautiful bonsai collections. There are plenty of trees for sale, but some of these trees are part of the Legacy collection. They're on show just for you. Until very recently, many of these amazing trees had not been seen by the public. Come along this weekend and just enjoy!
Legacy Bonsai is CLOSED on Good Friday (Fri 19th), but we are OPEN for the remainder of the Easter weekend.

It would be better if you put the price range so we can estimate the cash we'll have to bring along.

An awesome review of Legacy Bonsai from Gary Halfpenny. Thanks so much, Gary!

"A wonderful body of work, curated to suit a split level of Bonzai enthusiasts, collectors and then the masters.
The team are supportive, well informed and keen to share their knowledge. The centre itself, having recently secured a spectacular collection of MM’s (Martin Minny's) work have just moved up to next level status and if you have a chance to secure a piece, do so because these don’t come around too often. All in all, team Legacy are a treat."

Pop in for a visit over the Easter weekend and enjoy some of these magnificent works of art. We're closed tomorrow, but open for the remainder of the Easter weekend. Find us at the The Mushroom Farm - 450 Kassier Rd, Hillcrest.

Some of our regular visitors to our Facebook page will recall this video that i made some years back showing the beautiful collection owned by Martin Minny. This collection was featured in The Gardener Magazine and was a hidden gem. I am proud to have now acquired the entire collection and most of the trees are now on show at the Legacy Bonsai Nursery at the Mushroom Farm in Hillcrest. Many of the show trees will remain in my personal collection as Legacy Trees and will not be sold, but there are some for sale. Please pop around to view this spectacular collection now on show for the first time! I have included the short video again that was made when i first met Martin a few years ago! Enjoy. Clynt

Unbelievable footage of Martin Minny's bonsai collection: Martin started his bonsai collection many years ago in 1977 when he began with figs, but became an intensive bonsai fanatic around 2011. Those that have had the privilege of visiting his collection normally leave speechless. He has collected 100s of trees and has amassed a bonsai paradise that needs hours of intense investigation to appreciate. Watch and be inspired....or blown away!

Every tree has its own share of faults. It's important that bonsai growers do some research to see how they want their trees to turn out after the growing process. If you need help or guidance in this regard, drop in at any time. We're happy to help. ...
