Bonsai World of Cheltenham

Gloucestershire's Leading Bonsai Nursery

We would like to wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and thank you for your continued custom during 2020. We will be back open on Monday 28th December in compliance with government COVID guidelines.


We are a small family-run nursery specialising in the sale of indoor and outdoor Bonsai trees. We are located in the heart of the Cotswolds, and are not far from the Spa Town of Cheltenham.

With over 20 years experience and winners of many Gold medals at different flower shows around the country, we can offer you help and friendly advice on this fascinating hobby.

We stock a large selection of quality indoor as well as outdoor trees, also workshop material of all sizes to start you off or challenge you if you are more experienced. Our trees range from those just a few years old to some over 100yrs.

We keep a good supply of bonsai pots, tools, wire, composts and other accessories. In fact we have everything for the enthusiast or the beginner.

Personal Service

As a small nursery, we pride ourselves on the quality of service, and one-to-one advice that we can provide. If you are looking for a particular tree, then we can guide you in the right direction. If you would like to learn more about the art of bonsai, we can provide one-to-one training in the care of Bonsai trees.

We can also design and build specialist gardens and displays to meet all your requirements. If you’re looking for a present and are not sure what to buy then one of our gift vouchers may be the answer.

A mail order service is available for those customers who are unable to visit the nursery in person. A telephone help line is available for the support of customers with Bonsai tree problems, and we also offer a holiday care service.

Customer Feedback

'Drove a long way to go to Bonsai World and very glad I did. John & Chris were extremely helpful and friendly and John did a lot of prep work to get my new outside Bonsai trees looking just how I wanted them. Great choice and very informative offering loads of tips and guidance. Thanks for all your help and will definitely be back'

'A fantastic bonsai nursery with an extensive collection of quality indoor and outdoor specimens to suit a range of budgets and abilities'

'As a recent entrant into the hobby, I was initially apprehensive about visiting the shop due to my lack of knowledge. However, we found John and his team to be extremely welcoming and helpful, taking time to carefully and clearly impart their knowledge and address what must have been quite basic questions'

'Incredible help from John, the Mr Miyagi of Cheltenham'

'We visited Bonsai World in Cheltenham hoping that something could be done with our recently acquired Chinese Elm which we suspected might be dead. A lovely man named John amazed us when within minutes he had revived and expertly re-potted our little tree. He clearly has a passion for bonsai plants and knows all there is to know about caring for them. He also has a huge selection of beautiful bonsai for sale. We will definitely be going back to Bonsai World if we need any more help or advice in the future'
