I will be at Nature's Way Nursery in Harrisburg, PA at the beginning of
April. This time we will offer very special workshops. There are more
than 30 outstanding collected trees that we work on. These are Rocky
Mountain Junipers and Ponderosa Pines of exceptional quality. Some of
them are clearly material for world class bonsai.

We will do with the trees whatever need to be done at their stage. This
will be lifting form the container, examining roots. taking out old
debris from the root ball, cutting branches, deciding about future
shape, reducing foliage, cleaning trunks, potting into bonsai pots. The
participants will actually work with these trees hands on. I will
explain every step, what, how and why. I will go into the horticultural
side at length and certainly also into the artistic side. We will not
style a single tree, but participants will get a good picture of the
future of each tree. I will also make professional photographs of the
trees during the sessions. Folks who are interested will get my advice
about how to make professional bonsai images.
Most of the trees are available for sale by Jim Doyle. They are
certainly not cheap though. It is not required that someone purchases
any tree. Prices can NOT be quoted at this point in time. Trees will
have a price tag at the beginning of April though.

Dates: general workshops with several participants: Friday , April 4
(9am to 5pm) and Sunday, April 6 (10am to 5pm). I am also available on
Saturday, April 5 and Monday, April 7 for individual sessions if required.

Contact Nature's Way Nursery, Jim Doyle for the workshops and Jim or
myself for the individual sessions.

Walter, I hear you will be back in mid-April. Is this true, and will it be the same set-up as last year? I checked Jim's page, but it isn't updated for the new year.

300 new trees arrived at nature's way Nursery in Harrisburg, Pa. Together with those 100 which were there before this is arguably the most impressive offer of quality collected trees in the USA. Prices go from below 100 to way over 10,000 US$. Jim Doyle will price them very soon and they will be available almost immediately. Come and see for yourself. There are more than 100 quality trees in the range of 100 to 500 US$. Nobody will be able to say that they did not find anything for a reasonable price.
Beware: most trees are recently collected and cannot be worked on for a couple of years!!
Come and see for yourself!
Here just a few examples:

Sorry, I will not be there. Today the flight was canceled because there was no airplane in Munich. And 10,000 folks are waiting to get to the USA. The next flight offered was in two weeks. No, thank you. Or 5,000 US$ for an upgrade and flight on Saturday. They sure take their loss back. But not with me. So I have to repot trees here. Jim Doyle offers to run the workshop alone. And he offers a special discount to those who wanted to purchase a tree. So you folks can come anyway.
