I have started this blog so that it might be an opportunity to contact with bonsai lovers, enthusiasts and admirers worldwide.  Just recently put up a website www.maibanbonsai.com  that I hope will be of interest to all.  I have been selling on eBay since  2002 http://stores.ebay.com/Maiban-Bonsai_W0QQsspagenameZMEQ3aFQ3aSTQQtZkm , but want to have closer contact with people so that I may be of help to anyone that loves bonsai.

Bonsai have been a big part of my life for many years.   Bonsai mainly is an art of choosing a tree that potentially becomes a beautiful miniature tree. Then we grow it with our regular care, fully and lovingly, so that it can fit harmoniously with a pot to express the beauty of nature. Therefore, it needs light, water, fertilizer and soil suitable to grow strongly. At the same time, trimming and pruning, soil changing, pot changing, wiring and aging technique, all are necessary to shape trees as we expect or have a vision of.

Bonsai pots and soil are a most important part of bonsai. For this reason I decided to find a good source for akadama the Japanese soil used for centuries and one that keeps your bonsai healthy and happy. I have akadama, kanuna and pumice reasonably priced. I import by the container load, bonsai pots, stands and accessories. The pots are all hand made in a wood fired kiln, the way it has been done for centuries. I have a good variety of styles and sizes, from hand painted, glazed and unglazed to choose from.

We carry Joshua Roth Ltd. tools and accessories in our store. From my years of experience with bonsai, I have found that top quality tools are a wise and prudent investment in doing bonsai. High quality tools are the most economical over time. This is why I have decided to offer the high quality tools that Joshua Roth stands for.
