Bonsai Garden imports indoor bonsai and bonsai pots from the US and sources some varieties here in Ontario.

They are sold online at, on Kajiji, and at a few florist shops and greenhouses.

Greenhouse space is rented for $300/month (less in warmer months) just outside of London, Ontario, and they can easily be relocated.

This business is almost 2 years old, and I have been running it myself.

This business is perfect for someone looking to make a very minimal investment into a young business, and to grow it in a much better suited location like the Toronto area. It could even be run out of a home with a large sunroom, or a modest greenhouse.

Key Points:

- only 1 real competitor in Canada, located in Hamilton, especially for online sales
- website is highly visible on searches for bonsai trees for sale in Canada (on first page, very expensive to do) & pay per click ad campaign is fully set up (currently turned off)
- potted plants must be accompanied by phytosanitary certificate in order to cross boarder, making it impractical & nearly impossible to buy them from the USA (captive audience)
- only company in Canada to use professional bonsai soil, thanks to arrangement with large commercial soil producer (prevents root rot, making bonsai as easy to care for as typical house plants)
- fully functional E-commerce website (can easily expand to include online wholesale sales)
- colourful, informative care tags for indoor bonsai (only company in Canada to do so)
Facilities and Assets: - over 200 bonsai
- over 100 bonsai pots and trays
- air plants
Market and Competition: - only 1 real competitor of indoor bonsai in Canada, located in Hamilton
- only 1 Canadian competitor of online sales, and American bonsai companies must pay for and include expensive phytosanitary certificate along with bonsai to cross border
- no real competition in all of Toronto
Support/Training: - on-going, full support and help with importing and management of online E-commerce website
