In the run-up to this autumn’s Pacific Bonsai Exposition, I have actually been assuming a whole lot regarding assessing bonsai. We’re servicing a racking up system for the Exposition evaluating panel and also intended to offer everybody that’s interested a possibility to examine the method out.
For example trees, I have actually picked pictures from the 94th Kokufu Event kept in 2020.
Today I’ll offer a web link to twelve conifers and also twelve deciduous bonsai. Following week I’ll send out a web link to multi-point display screens in the tool and also shohin groups.
Your task, if you depend on it, is to designate a rating for every tree. I’ll share the cause a couple of weeks.
What enters into a rating?
I covered assessing conifers and also deciduous bonsai previously this year (see “ Conifers vs. deciduous bonsai: assessing various varieties“). What I really did not point out were ideas on appointing certain ratings.
On a 5 factor rating, do trees of typical top quality obtain a rating of 3 or 2 (or 1)? The previous benefits organizing the display right into equal rates of top quality while the last benefits recognizing the absolute best trees in the program.
For today workout– a possibility to review trees on screen at Kokufu– you can make use of whichever method functions best for you.
