NIBS – Bonsai Auction

I’m a member of the Northern Ireland Bonsai Society and we are having an auction to help raise money to deliver our 30th Anniversary Event Bonsai 30.

All items in the auction have been donated to the club with 100% of money raised going into our exhibition fund. The auction is open to everyone, not just club members so please follow this link over to the club auction page on the website for a look at over 40 lots available. There is a reserve on some items but set way below actual value. I foresee this auction having some absolute bargains even if you have to pay for a little postage!

Thanks for looking, and please help spread the word by re-blogging and sharing on social media.

I think this might be the UK’s best kept secret! Which is a shame as all these trees need to be sold and as many folk as possible need to attend to make it a success. I never had the pleasure of meeting Manuel before his passing, but every single person who has had contact has had nothing but good things to say about him. His widow simply can’t look after such a large collection and all these trees need new homes. A rather large legacy.

I was chatting to Dean, who has done a fantastic job of getting these trees up on the internet for everyone to browse before the auction on 2nd March. I offered to plug the auction here and also show some of my favourites from the list. He was delighted that I would be helping to raise the profile of the auction. So here you go. In each case, click on the image for further details and guide price.

I love this little clump of Chinese Elms, so natural looking.


Another great value forest.


A very nice Trident Maple

A nice natural looking Scots Pine

I think this big Scottie is a bargain at the price. It looks as if it is growing on a British hillside somewhere.

A bargain shohin Cork Bark Elm if it goes that cheap.

Nice to see an Oak making an appearance.

A nice example of a broom Zelkova

A nice Korean Hornbeam.

A really nice Maple group

I’ll post a few more tomorrow but for further info visit the auction site HERE
