bonsai general - 24 views
During my visit to the garden of Gordon Deeg, I was struck by the amount of bonsai shohin I found. Small conifers, evergreens and broadleaf deciduous varieties filled narrow benches around the garden.
Knowing how difficult it is to mount a screen shohin right, I appreciated the large number of small trees and the opportunities that from a viewing perspective.
I also thought about the frequency of shohin bonsai need water – up to several times a day – and transplantation – usually once a year -. And marveling at the effort that must go into these trees
Itoigawa juniper – great project tree
Thanks again to Gordon and Sei to Boku Bonsai Kai for the opportunity to join the fun and marvel trees collection Gordon. I’m looking forward to seeing these trees again in the next exhibitions!
