Trees in Pots


New hobby, new blog. Goes together like tea and biscuits, and Japan and bonsai. I’ve been collecting a few bonsai and driven myself to the leafy surrounds of Surry to do a few workshops at Herons Bonsai, under the guiding hand of bonsai master, Peter Chan.

At today’s count, I have four Scots Pine, a Chinese Juniper, a Sabina Juniper, a Hawthorn, a Chinese Elm, and a couple of Japanese maples in training. Today I received one of those Scots Pine’s, which was classed as Bonsai material, though it had been styled by Peter Warren, the author of a very good DK Bonsai book recently published. It has a wonderful thick, craggy trunk. Excellent potential – let’s hope I don’t kill that potential!
