Terry recently spent two days with me going through each of my trees and teaching me how to care for them in a much more professional manner. I now feel so much more empowered to do the right thing and have confidence to repot and style my trees on my own.This was the best thing I have done in terms of learning more about bonsai
I had a few one on one consultations with Terry Erasmus and can strongly recommend that. He is obviously a specialist when it comes to Bonsai and is very helpful!
Thank you Dirk, I have enjoyed our numerous consultations immensely and it has been great to see your trees transform for the better under our combined efforts.
Brilliant session, so insightful and creative was Terry with my trees. Gave me plenty of ideas in terms of wiring shaping and design. His experience (and patience with me ) was so valuable, walked away with so much more knowledge but also reenergised! Thanks Terry!
Have been tinkering with bonsai trees for a number of years with average results. Having spent time with Terry last spring on repotting , I decided to consult with him at his home this time. What an afternoon. Actually seeing how good styling , grafting etc should done using three of my trees, but having his collection as a reference, was a highly motivating experience. I learnt more techniques in one afternoon than I could understand from books . Truly another step forward on a journey to grow better bonsai trees.
Being a complete novice we attended one of Terry's workshops - wow doesn't cover it. He helped turn our shrubs into Bonsai! His advise and leading has given us so much confidence in re potting and wiring. We still have a lot to learn but with Terry's patience and clear explanations we look forward to the next course.
