Memory Lane – Bonsai Academy Yamadorii Buxus


Looking back….we can tell a tree’s story…..admire an image…..capture a moment…..remember a special event… inspired – to create a memory for tomorrow. 

I hope you enjoy this regular peep into some of John’s bonsai history.

Memory Lane – Bonsai Academy Yamadorii Buxus
One of our sessions on the bonsai academy classes involved a repotting demonstration of yamadorii (collected from the wild) material. On each of these occasions we used some old Buxus that had been originally collected in France.
This material is ideally suited to bonsai with it’s old twisted trunks, natural aged deadwood, and evergreen small-leaved foliage. The dense fibrous root system is also sympathetic to our cause.
Prior to each class the Buxus yamadorii raw material was pruned/cleaned out, totally wired and given it’s first styling. The work on the class basically involved repotting the styled tree out of it’s plastic training pot into an appropriate ceramic bonsai pot.
The photographs below show before and after pictures of some of the material used which was selected from our stock of raw material. This work was carried out during the period from 2008 to 2010.
If you are interested in our Bonsai Academy further information will soon be appearing on our website in the section “Bonsai Classes and Information”. You can then contact me by e-mail, telephone or at the nursery.
