Mark and Ritta Cooper presented a talk on Japan, Bonsai Shows and more specifically their passion, Shohin…in Japan. The talk was nicely varied, its subject appeals to both beginner and the advanced bonsai enthusiast. Topics included, favourite nurseries in Japan, shows, pots, displays, people, culture oh and even a bit about food. If you are planning a bonsai based trip to Japan, you would do well to catch this talk sometime.
After snow disrupting plans to visit Noelanders in January this year we held the Euro Tunnel booking and postponed it to a random date in May. Upon receipt of a reminder of this the week we searched around for any events in Europe and happened across the Sakura-Ten show
This is a list of Bonsai Nurseries which can be visited, please bear in mind a lot of the Nursery owners operate an appointment system or have limited opening hours so extend some courtesy and contact the supplier before visiting. Have I missed you? Get in touch…
