Lotus Bonsai Studio

One trader who caught my eye and interest this weekend at the Lodder Bonsai open weekend was Lotus Bonsai Studio.

In addition he had some exquisite mame bonsai over rocks which has inspired me to have a go at creating some myself as well as making a purchase of a ready made one.

Shohin and Mame @ our show 2018

This year we were pleased to also have a great collection of small trees on a range of shohin and mame displays at our show. The detail of some of these tiny bonsai trees is exquisite and they also have the cute factor. Below are the photos from each of the trees on the displays for your enjoyment. Thank you to everyone who set up a shohin and mame display as the time required to plan and then prepare these displays is often extensive as well as the day to day maintenance and care.
