Taishoen Part 2

5 Feb

I thought I had taken more pictures at the nursery, but realised I must of just been soaking up the enjoyment of our surroundings.
This maple was undergoing some major approach grafts.

Plenty of superb larger trees of the highest quality.

This sign really says it all, the commitment to expand and share the hobby with the whole world.

Thought I remembered this tree, first picture was during the ASPAC convention a couple of years ago and bottom one today. It’s a shame it lost the branch, I guess the deeper pot change was due to it weakening in the shallow one although it looked good in it.
