I would love to hear from you. Call or contact me at bonsaiherb@gmail.com. or follow me if you have a Google account on my blog. Or  leave me a “private message” in the contact form at the bottom of the page. New listings soon!

Plants will vary in price and container size Some will only be available during dormancy – late Fall or early Spring — and will be updated this winter. Seed or plant exchanges are always welcome!

Due to PayPal’s inability to handle and charge appropriate fees for multiple combinations I decided to re-edit all my listings to a ‘plant cost only.’  At the bottom of each listing page will be three shipping alternatives.
