The nurturing of these little wonders of nature has become a passion and way of life and, for us is certainly food for the soul.
Sharing knowledge and experience and watching new bonsai growers develop is an added joy.
Hopefully a stroll amongst the trees will fill you with a sense of peace and tranquility.
So if you are looking for a big selection of Bonsai trees, pots, tools, wire, soil, fertiliser, pesticides, starter trees, rocks, gravel, mesh and all other Bonsai requirements in Cape Town why not pay us a visit. We are open 7 days a week from 9am to 4pm.
Bishopsford is owned by Gail Theron who trained as a radiographer, but gave up her professional practice because of her love of bonsai which occupied her time fully. She had two years training as a nurseryman at a very large Garden centre in Cape Town in 1979 and 1980. As bonsai, and Oriental arts had already been her and her husband Lionel’s interest for many years they decided to expand their own nursery, and purchased seven acres in the delightful Hout Bay valley in order to achieve this ambition. The nursery in Hout Bay was established in 1980 and grew from strength to strength.
