New Trees Up for sale! Contact me at Gastrognome at aol dot com.
Shohin Root over Rock trident maple. Nice crown, roots gripping the interesting stone nicely. I think some extension on the lower branch to unround the crown is in order.SOLD
Shimpaku shohin. Good areas of Shari developed over the last couple of seasons. Entire lower branch under crown to become jin, bark removal and some texturing and it will be a great feature!
Shohin Black Pine stock. Ready for fall wiring! A nice wire job and this tree will look really nice. 36 years old, entirely pot grown, picture doesnt really do it justice.
Up next week: I’ll be accompanying my friend Toriumi(I’m sure all you pot nerds out there know exactly who Toriumi is!) and his associate, Endo San, of Asahi Bonsai, both professional Bonsai artists in Japan, on a tour of Bonsai nurseries in the Northeastern US. We’ll be starting in Rochester at Mr. Valavanis’s fantastic nursery, and making a loop through everything in 5 states before returning back to Rochester(hopefully, for a look at Mr. Carrapella’s wonderful collection!). Hopefully, fall has come to Rochester by the time we arrive, we’ll be a couple weeks early for optimal fall color(here in the deep south, such concepts are foreign but for pictures!) I’ll post up a full report on the trip when I get back. Promises to be a great time!
