About Us

Welcome to Bonsai.ie. Bonsai.ie is a journal web site on Bonsai, Japanese living and health.  Our aim is to bring you interesting articles on how to look after your trees, live positively with a Japanese lifestyle and inspire you to get more from your Japanese style garden.

Who we are?

Bonsai 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 Writers

We source writers from around the world and greatly appreciate their input. We also welcome any submissions from any writer who would like to contribute.

Over time this site will grow and expand with new articles of interest. If you would like to join us on Facebook you can find us under ‘Bonsai Ireland
