To allow for a little undisturbed growing time I am delaying any new shipping until July 19th.
If you are unfamiliar, or have no previous experience, with the species I am offering here, do some research before making a purchase. Please contact a bonsai club or nursery in your local area and find out if the tree will do well in your environment.
