Within the UK, most bonsai enthusiasts keep outdoor bonsai trees and by this I mean they keep species of trees as bonsai that are acclimatised to the weather conditions of the UK. Native species of trees are frequently used as well as more hardy non native trees that make excellent bonsai specimens.
Andrew Pearson of Stone Monkey Ceramics will be selling his superbly crafted bonsai ceramic pots at the 10th Anniversary Swindon Winter Image Show on the 19th February 2012. Andy handcrafts stoneware ceramics and his creations are inspired by Japanese ceramics.
