I had a difficult time finding seed. I was told at Touju-en that jbp seed would be available at another season.Look for the 1" needle cultivars of J.B.pine, really tiny, in the socks.shh
I only bring back cosmetics and clothes for wife.That explain why you have been absent from the board for awhile. What are you bringing back for me?
Yes! Some nice cheaper Chinese pots. I saw some at the small Shotou-en too. Shotou-en is near Kyuka-en.Been there esrlier this autumn and bought a couple of nice (and cheap) pots. Awesome!
On my second day back, I revisited Seiko-en and went to find Kyuka-en. Kyuka was sort of hidden because there was no sign. The map guide says they do natural style now using no wire, so this made me want to seek out this nursery. I did not find any wire, but I wonder if wire was used at some time long ago.
It's pretty difficult to take pictures because it is not very spacious and other reasons. I didn' feel comfortable picking up bonsai even when it was allowed there. Here's some not so good pictures.Murata did use wire but not as much as is used these days. It's fascinating to read that they don't use it now. I would love to see some more pics of the stock from there.
Thanks for sharing.
