Last work of the season on these two Chinese Hackberry originally field grown by Terry Erasmus from seed.
In this first part of this two part series I wrote about 5 things you SHOULD be doing with your bonsai in Autumn. In this the second part, I write about 5 things you should NOT do.
On a recent trip to Japan I visited two specialist nurseries; one that is well known and has won many awards in Japan for their shohin, and the other is a bonsai professional that specialises in Satsuki Azalea. In part one of this two part blog join me as we take a quick look at these nurseries and point out some exceptional examples of bonsai, perhaps some comments on their care and the techniques possibly used in their styling.
Japan, and more specifically Kyoto is a wonderful place to visit towards the end of November. If you do you will be able to enjoy not only the autumn leaf of the incredible number of maples but you will also be able to attend the annual Taiken-ten bonsai exhibition. These are photos from a previous trip to Kyoto, I hope you enjoy the beautiful colours and amazing trees.
