Bonsai Northwest has been supporting the art and hobby of bonsai in the Pacific Northwest since 1985. Bonsai Northwest was founded by the incredibly talented Sharon Muth. She founded the business to sell her handcrafted bonsai pots to local club members. As the business expanded, it incorporated finished bonsai trees, beginner bonsai lessons, and fine Japanese pottery. When Sharon’s son, John Muth, took the reins of the family business, he pioneered importing bonsai trees and expanded the availability of bonsai pottery throughout the U.S.
In 1985, Bonsai Northwest moved to a large retail shop in Tukwila, just south of Seattle. After decades of faithful service to the bonsai community, the retail shop closed its doors in 2020. Throughout its 53-year history, Bonsai Northwest helped bonsai culture flourish throughout the country. We are so very grateful to the Muth family for fostering the bonsai community and making it what it is today.
Bonsai Northwest is still dedicated to serving the bonsai community. While we are figuring out our next phase, we encourage you to reach out, join us on social media, and support our sister businesses. If you’d like to follow along as our journey unfolds, please sign up for our newsletter.
