About Us

Kia Ora, I am Joseph Ceronio. Everyone knows me as Joe. My wife, Raylene, our two year old son and I are the owners of The Bonsai Company.

Eight years ago, I started with two Bonsai trees as a hobby. I enjoyed spending time to prune, re-pot, shape and taking care of my master pieces, that it became a passion of mine.  As I watched my two Bonsai trees grow over the years, it instilled in me a desire to pursue this hobby, but I did not know how it would come to pass. 

When Renee Boleyn, our friend and the previous owner of The Bonsai Company Ltd, decided to close her business and sell her stock, we decided it was time for me to pursue my passion and make a career out of it.

In the interim, I worked as a Customer Service Engineer. I was with the company for 10 years when they went through some changes due to Covid19, I then decided to take voluntary redundancy.

We took a leap of faith and started the process of getting the business up and running. However, due to Covid19, as we all know, we could not do much to get ready to launch our new business, The Bonsai Company. 

It took us 18 months to get to this season in our lives.

We would like to say thank you to Renee, for the past 14 years of blood, sweat and joy, that made The Bonsai Company Ltd so successful.

We would also like to thank you, the customers for your support and your patience during these past 18 months. 

My family and I are looking forward to providing you with your vision for your Bonsai.

Thank you.

Joe, Raylene & JJ
