Bon-Chi! Learn and practice the art of Bonsai using edible plants!

  • Cultivate the City 910 Bladensburg Road Northeast Washington United States (map)

Growing chili peppers is already one of our favorite hobbies, but did you know that they are perennial trees and with the right care you can transform them into magnificent bonsai plants that grow with you all year long! Come learn about the basics of growing your own bonsai plant as well as a bunch of tips and tricks to be successful. We will cover Bonsai history, styles, tools, pruning, shaping, wiring, repotting, watering, fertilizing, pest control and soil blends. Feel free to bring your own bonsai tree and we will have additional ones available for sale. In addition to peppers, we will also have muscadine grapes, ficus, and other specimens in stock.

We are still in the process of creating our stock of "Bonchi"- Bonsai Chilis, but take a look here for inspiration!
