About The Heart of Dixie Bonsai

The Story

One man's obsession with trees turned into a life long hobby. HI, my name is John, the resident "bonsaimaster" and I live on the Alabama Coast.

I started bonsai years ago with my Dad and enjoy applying bonsai techniques to different species of trees.  Some of the species in my ever growing miniature forest are: bald cypress, azalea, japanese maple, crepe myrtle, many types of elms, serissa, boxwood, and several species of ficus. 

Growing and maintaining  trees in pots is always a challenge and I hope to use the pages to show the ins and outs of this endeavor. 

If you would like any information on bonsai or have anything that you would like to contribute, please feel free to use the contact page to make an inquiry.

Meet The Team

Bonsai Minions, everybody needs one or three. How could any bonsaimaster get things done without them? The Heart of Dixie Bonsai is no different, we indenture, I mean employ, minions to accomplish our work. If you like to work long hours for virtually nothing and would like to apply for a minion position, please use the contact form on the contact page to apply. Minions come and go, so we can always use a couple.

Mo, being full of derp and possessing a piercing blank stare, automatically makes all of the other minions feel like super geniuses.

Good at getting "very angry". Not much else, not even pulling weeds.

Does what he can with bonsai, but give this guy some bamboo and some coconut shells and he can make darn near anything.

Not much of a sense of humor and doesn't really get sarcasm, but he knows his stuff when it comes to bonsai. In the picture he is showing the other minions the importance of the scalene triangle, as it relates to bonsai.

Who doesn't listen to a little Maiden while they are working on trees? Eddie says you should. Isn't it said that singing to your plants makes them grow better?
