Gotta Love a Tree Critique

Maybe it’s just me but I love it when someone takes the time to video a show critique session, especially when they fight their way to the front 🙂 Thanks of bonsai magazine

It’s always interesting to see what different artists chose to comment on, and we can all learn from that. It’s not always about the quality of the trees but about display in general. This series of videos from the Prairie State Show has Walter Pall and Jim Doyle in full flow. Walter always makes it interesting and Jim has a honest way of putting his information across. The camera zoom/focus noise is a real pain but stick with it and you soon filter it out as the critique progresses.

Accent Man Cometh

I had a visit from Robert Porch, aka the Accent man a few days ago. Sadly I missed him at the house, but he did leave this crate of goodies.


This is the contents, only 3 of the 30 are named, so this is a bit of a quiz, if you recognises any of the varieties please let me know. There are a few Alliums, Saxafrage, hosta, rose etc in there.
