Welcome to Our Blog!

You have stumbled upon a fantastic place, dear reader!  It’s almost as good as being at our nursery in person!  Here you will be able to read posts about the happenings at our nursery, about growing bonsai in New Jersey and the rest of the tri-state area, and we’ll share some tips and tricks along the way, just to keep things educational.  This will be an entirely new adventure for us and we appreciate your feedback as we go.  We encourage active discussion and peer help!  We have just one ground-rule, that you be respectful to everyone in our community and keep the insults to the absolute minimum necessary 😉  We hope that this will be an area where our great community of Allshapes patrons can meet to share ideas and we can all become better bonsai artists and growers as a result.

With the trees that we all love to grow, we do the fertilizing, pruning, watering, and wiring, yet at the end of the day the tree does what it will.  A blog is a living community, and while we will set the general direction and give it everything it needs to grow, ultimately this blog is for you, by you, and where it goes will be directed by you, dear reader.  Just as with bonsai, we look forward to seeing how this blog will look down the road as it grows.  If you have any feedback on the site, the blog, or the nursery, or even if you just have a question about your particular plant, drop us a line, post a comment, or give us a call.  If you’re in the area just stop on by our nursery.

So with that, we welcome you to the blog of Allshapes Bonsai!
