New Shohin-bonsai VIDEO events and tutorials to be launched soon on YouTube. In June I will post the first in a series of shohin videos, where I explain case stories, pruning techniques, daily care and more with most focus on Shohin-bonsai. Most from my private garden, showing how I work with my private collection. Also the outdoor Tokonoma will be part of the videos, where I will explain how both Shohin and larger bonsai are displayed during the season. All episodes will be published here on the website too.
View the Facebook LIVE streaming at Bonsai Empire from my bonsai garden May 27th. I will give a tour around the garden, answer questions and talk about some of the bonsai and how they are developed.

A nice day with nice people at Nordic Bonsai today. Students progressed very nicely with good material, and made some future trees. Especially one brave student made the “Albek-cut” and formed the basics of a big Yew, making a step forward to a Shohin-bonsai in future. Thanks for being there, to both my Danish friends and friendly guests from Sweden 🙂
Here a few snapshots taken in between teaching.
Just a brief note, telling that the article about Bonsai Namaste now has been published in the Bonsai Focus Magazine. Read it there, or go to the Bonsai Namaste website to see more.
As usual winter wants to sign out of the season by dropping a few cm soft snow over the garden. It will be gone by tomorrow, and then I am ready for repotting-season. Have to wait a little though and see how March behaves.
