Bonsai Matsu - Inspire Inform Involve

Bonsai Matsu has grown out of a love for bonsai in particular for the care, nurturing and development of bonsai at all stages of their life.
Whether developing raw stock or refining more advanced trees or providing the necessary seasonal work to ensure your bonsai develops to its utmost potential. We also have a strong focus on training in an environment where there is no fear of asking the wrong question. You will leave our training sessions with both the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to take the next step in your bonsai journey. With limited class sizes it is important to book in early. Bonsai Training Courses and Japanese Bonsai Tools can all be viewed online.

We provide high quality Bonsai Tools and if you are looking for a particular item then let Scott know. We have the contacts and facilities to import Japanese tools and specialty items from Japan. Our standard Bonsai Tools available online include the high Quality Kikuwa Bonsai Tools from Japan. These can be shipped Australia wide.

Bonsai Matsu can also manage your personal collection. With a number of customers all over Melbourne we can make regular visits to your home and either work with you or simply undertake the required care for your trees when convenient for you.

If you would prefer for the styling and maintenance of your bonsai to be done offsite, then Scott can do the work in his workshop and simply give you the finished tree.

It was fantastic to meet with you and see what you are doing. I appreciate also your willingness to share your knowledge.The trees are going GREAT! I have put them in a shady spot with filtered sun and look at them/admire them frequently. There’s new growth appearing on all the trees. I am really thrilled with your work.

I took part on Bonsai Matsu Beginners Course yesterday. Scott, the course provider made the 3 hours we spent together, very interesting. You can’t expect to become an expert in 3 hours but I was surprised how much he covered and showed us during the course time.

Well and simply structured, the information was provided almost simultaneously with the practice part, making it easier to assimilate it.

Scott has been doing Bonsai for over 15 years now and has done several training sessions in Nurseries in Japan, so he is very knowledgeable in the area.

Scott started by showing us his Bonsai Samples (hundreds of them…) – which got us all nice and jealous.

The highlights were the 50 year old stunning Japanese Maple and the several Cherry Trees in different stages and shapes.

We were taught – and did it ourselves – how to do the Repotting, Pruning, Watering, Preparing the Potting Mix, Wiring and Growth Patterns. The best part was that we all got to bring back home our masterpieces, so hopefully, in 3 to 4 years time, we will start to see some results already on the Liquid Amber Tree that we worked on.

Scott also sells Bonsai Tools and can advice you what you need to buy at each stage of the Bonsai Process.

It was a very well spent afternoon and I do recommend his beginners Course for those who have been thinking on getting into Bonsai.

Thank you Scott and see you soon,
