niniture Bonsai with weeds moss and old cooton sock.
« on: March 25, 2007, 11:45:10 PM »
I am going to have a class of niniture bonsai with material you can find in your back yord, vacant lot and Wall mart. Of cause  Smith & Hokins too. Seedling of any trees you can find in your own yard or next door, weeds ,moss from vacant lot or side of street. with or without bonsai pot. Old cotton sock can be use as container.

 Quick, easy and cheap ..... Americanway  ;D
 some of bonsai took me only 10 miniuts.  most are take only 30 to 40 miniuts. some are called Kokedama instead of Bonsai. It is real fun to make it and don't need to have lot's of skills, tools and money.

Where : Smith & Hokens  Marietta Store 
 near Jhonsaon ferry Road , Roswell road intersection.  in the Avenue shoping center.

When
 April 7  Saturday   11:00 AM

Cost :  free

Instractor: Mike Yamakami

Address :  Smith & Hokins
               4475 Roswell road#1610  Marietta, Ga 30062
             
               Phone  770-578- 8711   James /store manager
 
 If you visit to the store you can see samples before the Class.

 any other question  Japanese garden design, pruning etc  I am happy to answer(s) after the class.

Hi Mike,
The weather here as been brilliant these last few days it looks like summer is well on the way, I have been tidying the garden up after the winter and all the shrubs are starting to sprout there new growth and I too am getting sun tanned ,(I just love the sun).
Yes,thank you, I would read buddhism books I do a lot of reading,I am just waiting for the new book called NIWAKI which is coming out in April all about training and prunning trees and shrubs in the Japanese style the author lives in the UK and I have ordered a signed copy from him.
If the new trend in Japan is English gardens I think that's a fair swap  ;)
George.
