Yamadori - The Real Fun Side of Bonsai!
Have you ever wondered how some bonsai enthusiasts somehow seem to have the oldest and most beautiful bonsai? The answer is..... they let nature do most of the work.
Yamadori bonsai are found growing in the wild, usually from seedling, and grow slowly for many years, in some cases more than a century, before they are collected, and on a lot of occasions rescued from dying due to adverse conditions then finally potted to become truly 'one of a kind' bonsai trees.
!!Also, be aware that the trees you are collecting are not endangered or protected.
