2. Winter storage
Since 1990, BMK Bonsai has dedicated decades to cultivating and storing bonsai and providing bonsai artists and collectors a facility to house and winter master trees. Winter is the most challenging time for growing bonsai in cold climates. Cold hardy bonsai are kept from freezing in BMK's temperature-controlled facilities, allowing them the dormancy they need for optimal health.
Tropical/Indoor bonsai spend the cold months in a specially heated greenhouse, where they receive the right amounts of light, air circulation, and well water to thrive.
3. Repotting, wiring, and pruning
BMK services include fertilizing, insect and disease control, maintenance pruning, and repotting as needed.
