The tour continues bonsai Portland

always amazes me how lush and green of spring is around Portland when the dogwood, rhododendron and thorns are in full bloom. Driving between bonsai gardens in the area provided ample opportunity to enjoy the season.

Even more surprising is the amount of material collected in the area. Visiting bonsai gardens in Oregon means seeing Ponderosa pine, fir, Douglas fir and juniper trees of the Rocky Mountains in number I have not seen anywhere else. This is due largely to the efforts of Randy Caballero, main collector area for bonsai material, and the efforts of many bonsai enthusiasts Portland to collect and prepare on their own.

My recent tour of the gardens of bonsai Oregon with Eric Schrader would not have been possible without the generosity of these enthusiasts Portland who welcomed us to their gardens and teach us about the advantages and challenges of growing trees in and around Willamette Valley. Alan, Lee Scott, Greg, Michael, Matt, Chris, Robert, Ryan and Randy – thanks

Here’s a look shown some of these trees – more is on the way next week
