Shohin the way in Denmark

British Shohin Bonsai

It’s always good to see the magic of shohin spreading across the globe and we here at British Shohin Bonsai are delighted to see Morten’s new shohin association in Denmark taking off.   We wish him every success with the association – the more people who are spreading the shohin love the better in our book.   Here is how Morten announced the new venture.

Geo Feng High School

The China National Penjing exhibition was held on the grounds of the Geo Feng High School which is a private boarding school owed by Mr. Ma. The grounds are exquisite with trained garden trees throughout the campus.

Most of the taller trees are Podocarpus which are trained and regularly trimmed. The value of these trees is at least USD $20,000 each, and there are countless number. Also there are a great number of trained Japanese five-needle pines, which look like they were imported from Japan, also expensive. Additionally large penjing are placed around the field track, swimming pool and around pathways. I wonder if the students realize the beauty they are surrounded with and also their value. The huge garden stones were easily taller than most people. Around back one could enjoy a beautiful pond full of prize winning koi fish.
