15/06/21 During June this year I had the pleasure of welcoming a BBC film crew from Gardeners World to my garden and we spent the day filming the garden and many of the trees in my private collection. There is currently no scheduled date for transmission of the 8-9 minute film; apparently this is at the whim of the executive production team, but we expect it to go out during this Autumn 2021. Announcements will be made on social media as soon as I get any news!

05/08/19: During July 2019 I had the pleasure of a visit from Bonsai Empire who made a short film of my bonsai garden (see here). Bonsai Empire also filmed me working on a number of trees over a 3 day period, and this will culminate in a series of lectures to be released this Autumn, 2019.

03/12/16: A first taster of a big new project that we've been developing over the past few months for Bonsai4me.
The new Bonsai4me online shop will launch on December 26th. As well as selling bonsai books and yamadori bonsai for sale, it will also contain a wide range of high quality Japanese and European bonsai pots.
This part of the venture is designed to promote quality European bonsai pottery and give easier access to quality European (and Japanese) pottery via a Potters' Collective of artists offering their work for sale.
Some of Europe’s most popular and highly regarded potters, Stone Monkey Ceramics (Andrew Pearson), Holvila Bonsai Pots (Thor Holvila) and Erin Bonsai Pottery (Victor Harris) have already agreed to be fully involved and we are reaching new agreements with several very big names across Europe as I write (further announcements will be made as more potters join the Collective).
Additionally, there will be a Japanese side to the service, that will offer quality vintage and antique Japanese pots, as well as information on them, and their creators.
