loves plants Oregon – 100 nurseries wholesalers can not be wrong. Many of these nurseries focus on conifers – and at least one bonsai grows exclusively :. Telperion Farms
Chris and Lisa Kirk began Telperion Farms on 100 acres east of Salem, Oregon. Numerous golf culture compatible with pines, maples and junipers while less common varieties including hornbeam, quince and ume, fill many more. Kirk also grow more than 90 varieties of Satsuki Azalea.
The Kirk are among the nicest people in the business and they are doing a great job with their trees. Gary Wood contributes to Telperion so, with what his great horticultural knowledge to bear.
You can get from trees Kirk in a variety of events in western bonsai, trees ordering online, or visiting the nursery in person. I recommend the latter – it’s great to see the trees close

I can not imagine the amount of work needed to maintain a field after another of the trees, but I can say it sounds funny -. Especially when the trees grow so quickly
the large number of Shimpaku on earth brought a smile to my face.

Elsewhere in the nursery, maples were growing rapidly.
