Our Past:

Located in Stamford, CT, Shanti Bithi Nursery has been one of the largest growers and importers of Bonsai in the United States since 1978.


For many years Shanti Bithi Nursery has grown specimen-quality rare Japanese maple cultivars. Some of our specimens, both bonsai and full-size trees, have been loaned to the New York Botanical Garden for its annual autumn exhibition entitled “The Japanese Autumn Garden: Momijigari.”

Come visit our new bonsai display garden, where many of our prized specimens are for sale for the first time.

Our Present:

We are reducing the inventory at our retail location in order to take our garden design expertise in a new and exciting direction: limited project-based private design. Small, intimate spaces for contemplation and meditation in the form of peace gardens here and abroad will be our priority.

We will also be designing signature golf holes that will enhance the golfing experience, changing the way we look at the game .

Our Future:

For all of our new projects, we hope to incorporate treasured objects from our collection of stones and rare plant material grown or acquired in the course of our privileged horticultural journey.

Thank you to all who have shared and will share the peaceful energy our Shanti Bithi enterprise seeks to embody.


Our Name:

Shanti Bithi means "The Path of Peace" in Sanskrit. The name was given to us by our Indian meditation teacher, the late Sri Chinmoy.

Shanti Bithi means ‘Path of Peace’ in Bengali. The name was given to the nursery by Indian meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy.
