Bonsai & Penjing

The bonsai collection is a blend of native and imported bonsai. Many medium-sized trees are kept in shape by Samuel Thompson and managed by Leigh Taafe. Some trees are donated permanently to the collecting and others are on loan on a three-year contract.

Only maintenance and very few adjustments of the trees are part of the on-loan deal with the bonsai selected. Every third year the bonsai are shifted and new trees are selected for a period from applicants.

    It is. There is a great variety of national species in the collection. There also is a very long history of bonsai, I guess is equal to Europe. The quality is high and the active bonsai community have many members.
