We probably all do it. More or less. Looking back and then into the year ahead. Summing up hat went good and hopefully not so bad. Then making premises for the new year. So do I. A little.
At the bottom of this post a gallery of highlights from the Kisetsu-en garden in 2021.
2021 – a brief look at the year behind us
The past year has been busy as newer before. Doing online content mostly because of the Covid-19 pandemic grounding many one-to-one meetings in person. Replaced by online meetings and seminars mostly. All abroad events were cancelled, but that wasn’t a big surprise.
The growing seasons also had challenges. It was a strange year with an awful cold hit in spring, setting growth back for some trees. But all survived and with some extra attention in the coming seasons, we will not be surprised again.
The nursery is expanding little by little, making room for more bonsai material for teaching. In all kinds of sizes. Teaching bonsai demands different types of material so we can demonstrate and teach various topics.
Kisetsu-en is now an established online platform for bonsai learning, and the past one of half years after we started the subscription platform, we have been working on improving it. Mostly used time on getting everything to work well, and improving the user experience. Now we want to move forward.
2022 and the future of Kisetsu-en
Kisetsu-en translated means “Garden of the changing seasons”. It’s a lovely name for a bonsai garden I find.
It covers fully the spirit of the nursery. Following the seasons and expressing the beauty of nature with the seasonal changes.
Our goal for 2022 is to expand and build upon what we have done so far.
Aiming to be the best educational online platform on the European bonsai scene, and worldwide for bonsai enthusiasts who want to learn to grow their own bonsai from simple and less affordable material as well as Yamadori.
With an education as a gardener and 25+ years of growing bonsai, I am ready to take you further with your bonsai. Bringing you the best of horticulture and artistic skills to improve your skills and improve your bonsai.
