About the Newstead Bonsai Centre...

Welcome to the Newstead Bonsai Centre, home of The John Hanby Bonsai School.

The Newstead Bonsai Centre is one of the largest bonsai nurseries in the UK and is conveniently located near Wakefield, West Yorkshire within easy access of major road routes including the M1, M62 and A1.

We always have a good selection of established indoor and outdoor bonsai from small starter material to older more refined specimen trees. For those wishing to create their own bonsai you will also find a varied selection of deciduous and evergreen specially selected field grown raw material.

Our accessories shop has an excellent range of tools, fertilisers, composts, books, magazines, and a separate pot store.

With the Japanese garden in mind we continue to supply a range of older, larger trees/shrubs and stone lanterns.

We pride ourselves in providing customers with the very best bonsai supplies supported by our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Our Bonsai School holds more classes than any other bonsai school in Europe. We cater for students at all levels with regular practical beginners classes, workshops, and a bonsai academy now entering its sixth year. The School aims to teach students about the proper care required to grow, develop and refine their bonsai throughout the year. Classes are   conducted in a comfortable purpose built studio and are led by John Hanby....the internationally respected professional bonsai artist and teacher.


Newstead Bonsai Centre is now open by appointment......please telephone the nursery on 01977 610040.

Please note, we no longer have a cafe onsite so students attending classes will need to provide a packed lunch.
