Repotting some of my Shohin bonsai!


Hi, everybody,

here are some pictures I made from my Shohin repotting session.

Above: The second one (little Terry) is a Taxus Yamadori from the UK and was also many years ago a gift from my good friend Terry Foster (UK).

My old Bonsai friends have always been very good to me and lots of the trees that are still in my collection today are aether a gift or are collected with them in the wild!

The fourth one shows (little Tony) in full bloom. This was first trained for many years as an informal upright Bonsai but was a few years ago radically changed into this more dramatic style!

And the last one shows them along some of my other Shohin, a Punica granatum and my old Dutch yamadori Potentilla fruticosa that won 1 price at the Dutch Bonsai association some 20 years ago.

Shohin are a real joy in my garden, especially the once that bloom in Springtime!

I hope you enjoyed this little impression of my Shohin!? Sorry for the poor layout, this is the best I can do for now!
