Topical Times – My trees at Bonsai Europa

A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..

Topical Times – My trees at Bonsai Europa

Just arrived back from Bonsai Europa at Bury. Excellent exhibition with a lot of very good trees and a good mix of traders selling everything you could possibly wish for.

I exhibited my Privet and my big Trident, the latter affectionately known as “Big John”. I started working on these trees 15 years ago…..they were both stumps with no branches whatsoever.

This was the first time both trees had been exhibited outside the nursery in this country and I was happy to say they both did me proud.

The picture of the Trident in the round pot was taken in spring 2000 whilst the other early pictures of both trees were taken in spring 2002.
