Our fertilizer baskets are perfect for our pellet fertilizers or if you go with the small size even our granular fertilizer.  Don't use our fertilizer?  You can use these baskets with most fertilizer including our imported Tosho and Tamahi Japanese Fertilizers. 

Directions:  Fill the basket, Snap the top shut then push the spikes into the bonsai soil towards the edge of the pot. 

Example:  For a 10" pot, 3 medium fertilizer baskets should be pushed into the soil at three locations around the perimeter of the pot..  After the fertilizer disappears simply pull the baskets, refill and place between where the fertilizer baskets were previously.  Repeat as necessary.

These are a deterrent to some animals such as chipmunks and squirrels.  Larger animals may be able to bite the baskets open and eat the contents.  The baskets make it hard to get to the fertilizer and the spikes help keep most animals from taking the fertilizer with them.

Bonsai Fertilizer Baskets

I was surprised at the good quality of these fertilizer baskets. I purchased some a few years back from another bonsai store that were not the best quality.

I'm waiting for the larger size but these will do just fine until larger size comes in...I can actually use all the sizes next summer!
Thank you Superfly Bonsai for another great product!

Ask a Question
  • I'm new to Bonsai trees how does the fertilizer banquets works once they are in place? Do you water them so fertilizer is release into the soil? Do you use it every time you water the tree? Please let me know. Marcelo J

    Fertilizer is placed into the baskets then pushed into the soil around the tree.  They should be spaced 3" - 6" apart.  Each time the tree is watered a little fertilizer is released from the basket.  They are normally kept on the tree at all times except when the tree is out of the growing season and you are not fertilizing or you are showing the tree.
