    Welcome to Sakura Bonsai Gallery.  If you would like to share our passion, learn about the art of bonsai, or simply forget about the world, contact us to book your tour of our gallery in Dorrigo.

    Sakura Bonsai Gallery

    MossGrove's Bonsai Gallery houses some 100 mature and 'in-progress' trees; some more than 70yrs old, most 25 - 40 years old. Most of the bonsai have been started as cuttings or seedlings, field grown to develop some size, then container grown to promote a refined style and root system.

    If you have an interest in all things Bonsai than here we have a small sample of what is on offer at the gallery.

    The trees are large!... some well over 100cm high.

    We built the Bonsai Gallery to showcase the best bonsai in the collection. The gallery features many fine specimens of Japanese Black, Red, and White pine,Trident and Japanese Maple, Swamp Cypress, Ficus species, Chinese Elm, Sequoia, and many more.

    Japanese Bonsai Tour 2016

    The Omiya Bonsai Village (大宮盆栽村, Ōmiya Bonsaimura) in Saitama City is a tranquil neighbourhood two train stations north of Omiya Station. Multiple bonsai nurseries and a superb bonsai art museum are situated along the district's peaceful paths. Private houses in the area typically have a collection of bonsai in their gardens.
    In October 2016 we spent an unforgettable day in the village. We booked a tour through Yoshihiro Nakamizu. Yoshi san met us at our hotel in Tokyo. After visiting Kimura's garden, we had a great Japanese lunch at Bonsai Restaurant Omiya.
    Omiya Bonsai Village has five bonsai gardens and a bonsai museum. The quality of the bonsai of Kimura, Yamada and Kato san was of the highest level.
    Yoshi also introduced us to Kunio Kobayashi who owns a bonsai museum closer to Tokyo. Kobayashi san has more than 1,000 bonsai, again, of a quality we could not have imagined.

    The National Bonsai and Penjing Collection

    The living artworks of this national collection feature some of the finest miniature trees and forests in the world, created by some of Australia's leading bonsai and penjing artists.

    About 80 bonsai and penjing trees and forests are usually on display, in a variety of traditional and modern styles, with both Australian native and exotic trees.

    Bonsai and penjing are like living sculptures, shaped over time to convey concepts, ideas, emotions and stories. The trees are designed to reflect trees or landscapes in nature; to create a sense of calm and peacefulness and broaden the viewers' cultural understanding.

    The oldest trees in the Collection are more than 60 years old, much younger than the oldest known bonsai and penjing in the world at over 800 years old.
