When I was in Rochester, New York, for the 4th US Exhibition National Bonsai, I made sure to visit the most famous bonsai garden in the area -. Bonsai Arboretum International headquarters Bonsai Collection Valavanis
International Bonsai Arboretum
Moments after setting foot inside the Arboretum, several things become very clear. There are many beautiful trees here. The range of varieties is impressive. And Valavanis has been at this for a long time. The age and character of the trees in his garden reveal many years in the making -. A testimony of more than 50 years of hard work
Euonymus – one of my favorite trees the garden
walking through the garden, Valavanis said outstanding and surprising facts. Corkbark maple tree bonsai landscape and the same variety growing beside it are the same age.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with garden or wanting to learn more, I recommend a copy of classical art Bonsai Valavanis’ – a study of the creation of 100 best trees. See a good review in The Bonsai Journal.
After walking through the garden for a while I reflected on how much effort should be required to keep as many trees in such good shape. I’m not sure how Valavanis do, but I’m glad you find the time for it.
