About Tasmanian Bonsai Centre

The Bonsai Nursery had its origins in 1982 at Brown Mountain Nursery & Gardens, Underwood, Tasmania under the mastership of the late Neale Farrell < dec. 1991>

Trees styled by Neale are included in our collection.

The Bonsai Centre was opened at the Riverside site in Oct. 1995 by Bonsai Master Susumu Nakamura from Japan < with whom Lynne studied in 1993 >

A Bonsai is never " finished ".

Our Bonsai trees are continually worked on, pruning, restyling & repotting to improve their health & appearance.
