A go to to Invoice Valavanis’ bonsai backyard

The day after this 12 months’s US Nationwide Bonsai Exhibition, Invoice Valavanis hosted a workshop at his backyard, The Worldwide Bonsai Arboretum, whereas volunteers unloaded vans and guests (like me) loved the timber!

Invoice’s backyard is likely one of the should see bonsai gardens in North America, and it’s been amongst my favorites since I first visited 9 years in the past. Listed below are some highlights.

Koji ran a workshop within the morning and a shohin show class within the afternoon. Invoice had about fifty small timber for Koji to work with through the presentation wherein he gave members the chance to arrange dislpays and get suggestions about how they did.



One factor that makes visits to the arboretum enjoyable is that there are all the time new timber within the works. Invoice has an in depth nursery along with the backyard the place he develops materials for courses and on the market.

This barely scratches the floor of what a full tour of the backyard entails. For extra details about Invoice and his backyard, go to his web site (the place you possibly can study his gross sales, excursions, and upcoming occasions) and weblog (the place you possibly can see images of his gardens and his visits to bonsai gardens around the globe).
