I caught up with an old friend this week. Robert Porch is in N Ireland seeing family and called with me. Robert taught me a lot about bonsai and is probably one of the most understated, under estimated bonsai artists in the UK.

He brought a selection of accent plants with him and we managed to do a few swaps.

Some of the trays of accents available.

I got my hands on a dwarf Astilbe.


Hosta, he had about 7 varieties with him!
