About us

Lodder Bonsai is a family business that has its roots in specialty plants. It started to specialize in bonsai in the early sixties.  We were the first company in Europe to be commercially involved with bonsai. The first bonsai were imported from Japan, then later from Taiwan, China, Korea and Indonesia.


Lodder Bonsai has remained a leader in the field of bonsai in Europe. We are known for our extensive product range, high quality and service. Lodder Bonsai is able to meet both the requirements of large retailers and specialized bonsai dealers.






With almost 50 years of experience in the trading and cultivation of bonsai, combined with our excellent contacts with suppliers in the Far East, Lodder Bonsai is your ideal partner.

In 2005, the company moved the nursery to a new location and created a modern, sustainable greenhouse.  The nursery is in Harmelen (10 km west of Utrecht) which is centrally located in the Netherlands. The nursery has an area of 16,000 m² and has been designed especially for the cultivation of bonsai and the related logistics.
