During our recent trip to Holland, we called in at ‘t Veerle in Belgium which is a hidden gem of Japanese Bonsai trees in particular Pinus parviflora and Satsuki Azalea. They also have a large collection of Niwaki garden trees plus Koi too, all set in a great landscaped garden with adjoining resturant.

They are very welcoming and we look forward to a return visit perhaps on the 2nd and 3rd of June this year for their open weekend. There will be demonstrations and workshops by Bonsai Master Abe Kenichi who is a Pine specialist and Mr Sekiyana who is a Satsuki specialist. There will also be a New Belgium bonsai talent competition on Saturday at 9.30am.

For further information I reccomend you visit their website at www.vijvertuinen-tveerle.be or e-mail them at info@vijvertuinen-tveerle.be
