Welcome to my Bonsai Blog.
Over the last few years I have become a fan of following bonsai blogs and I decided to jump in and give one a go for myself. I started this Blog in February 2011.
I have tried over the years to keep records of my bonsai and usually forget to keep them updated, or loose the information when the computer crashes! It dawned on me that a better way would be to keep those records here in the online world were others can also view and share my experiences, successes and mistakes.
Please keep checking in as I will be adding Case Studies to help me keep a record of certain bonsai in my collection. I plan to include a full gallery of my trees through the seasons. In recent months I have been doing my best to add daily blog posts covering, not only my bonsai, but my adventures while out walking and looking for inspiration.
A few years ago I was asked by BBC NI to feature my garden on their new gardening programme called ‘Secret Gardens’. I was a tad camera shy, but agreed, and this is what was produced. It took two days of filming and they left out the best bits! It’s was filmed in 2006, so is a bit out of date as far as my trees go, but it’ll give you an idea what I look like at least.
Feel free to comment on any page, and I would love you to say ‘hi’ on the guest book if you have liked what you’ve read.
