I was told about this website yesterday and just love the concept.
It's called 'Our Bonsai' and features bonsai that have started from simple beginnings. These are trees created from nursery stock, garden trees and hedging.
The trendy side of bonsai in Europe is all about Yamadori and there can be no question that this produces the top level of bonsai. However, yamadori can be hard to source in Northern Ireland and, the way over the top prices being charged for imported material from Europe, is beyond the reach of most of us. This site shows what can be achieved by everyone out there, no matter how deep your pockets are, and should give inspiration to us all.
