Peace Tree Care

General Care: Place the Bonsai outside from Spring to Fall, then it is brought indoors for the winter. Or you can place it in a bright sunny spot indoors year-round. 

Watering: Olive trees thrive in desert-like conditions in the Mediterranean, so letting the soil dry out before watering again is recommended. Unlike most Bonsai, this tree is very hardy and can withstand less frequent watering. When placed outdoors in warm to hot temperatures, the Olive tree will enjoy watering daily in the evenings. 

Pruning: The Olive Tree Bonsai can be pruned anytime the branches get long to maintain their shape. Or the branches can be allowed to grow out to form a new profile for the tree. 

Repotting: The Olive Tree Bonsai requires a repotting every 2-3 years. Repotting is best done in the spring. Remove the tree from the pot and gently loosen the soil with a chopstick or root pick. Trim the root ends gently, place it into its pot, and add a Bonsai-specific soil or any other well-draining soil type. There is no need to change the pot; you can continue to use the handmade ceramic Bonsai pot it has come in for years. 


Product Description:

Mediterranean Olive Tree (Olea Europaea) is 4-5 years old and comes in a handmade 4" ceramic Bonsai pot with a matching tray. The trees range in height from 6"-10". 



The Peace Tree Bonsai is a living tree and requires care, watering and occasional maintenance. By purchasing this tree, you assume responsibility for its wellbeing and care. 


In the rare case that the tree arrives damaged, we will replace it when contacted within 48hrs of delivery.

Soil (Substrate)

Bonsai soils are usually a mixture of organic potting compost (Pine Bark or Forest Floor), Akadamapumice, lava rock in varying amounts. 

It is important for the soil have good water retention while also draining well, along with very good aeration. The quality of the soil directly affects the health, size and growth of your tree. One of the worst things you can do to your tree is plant it in regular garden soil. Garden soil hardens when it drys and can often lead to a disadvantage when growing a Bonsai. 

Soil mixtures can be purchased here, but given their weight and cost of shipping, you can also easily make your own. 

 

Depending on the type of Bonsai you're growing, here are the general formulas for successful mixtures. 

Deciduous Tree (Leafy and looses leafs in the fall)

50% Akadama

20% Pumice

20% Lava Rock

10% Potting Compost

 

Coniferous Tree (Evergreen like Juniper, Cedar)

1/3 Akadama

1/3 Pumice

1/3 Lava Rock

 

If you are not able to check on your Bonsai's moisture levels daily, add more Akadama to the mix. 

Given how these soils erode over time, repotting every 2-3 years is required. 

 

Here are some suitable replacements if you cannot find the recommended types of soil.

  • Akadama - fine fired or baked clays, some even recommend cat litter as a substitute. 
  • Pumice - fine crushed aggregates, expanded shale and vermiculite.
  • Lava Rock - This can be replaced with fine gravel or you can also look into purchasing a larger lava rock at a hardware or gardening centre and crushing it. 

 

Fertilizer

One of the best and easiest ways to fertilize your Bonsai, is to add a liquid fertilizer mix when water your Bonsai's once a month during the spring/summer. If your Bonsai looses leaves in the winter there is no need to fertilize it then. If you have a coniferous tree, fertilizing the tree once in the beginning of winter and once in the middle of winter should be sufficient.
