about us

Welcome to Bonsai.ie. Bonsai.ie is a journal web site on Bonsai and Japanese Gardens.  Our aim is to bring you interesting articles on how to look after your trees or inspire you to get more from your garden

Who we are?

Bonsai Ireland is located in the ‘Garden of Ireland‘ also known as County Wicklow, Ireland. The site is owned by myself Paul Masterson and Lynda Sheane. We are both avid collectors of Bonsai, Tropical plants, Orchids and have a strong understanding of the benefits and meditative qualities of Japanese Gardening.

We are located in a very picturesque part of Wicklow, with Brittas Bay behind us and the Wicklow hills in front of us. Our Swedish style eco-house is aptly named ‘Windy Acre’, not after me but the strong breezes either from the sea or north-west.

Our Bonsai

We grow mainly outdoor native species trees either from seed or collected specimens that grow on local farmland. The indoor bonsai are all grown from seed. Other indoor plants from seed is the ‘Bird of Paradise‘, which flowered last year for the first time in seven years. A collection of Banana trees, Silk Trees, Joshua Trees and Lynda’s prize collection of Orchids.
