ITS ONLY THE BEGINING....WEEKEND WORKSHOP WITH GRAHAM POTTER

Post  Savvas P. on Mon Mar 19, 2012 6:58 pm

It was decided at first at the BBBO in Birmingham, last year…If everything went according to plan Graham Potter was to be in Cyprus sometime in March 2012.Yes he did….Last weekend Graham was with us for a two day workshop…Two days full of Bonsai, twenty two hours with a guy that learned the subject not through books, pictures bright lights and big words, but through years of experience in horticulture, love and respect for his trees and his customers…..He shared with us, as much knowledge as we could absorb during these 22 hours…We wired, we curved, we re potted, we styled,we cut,we through away,and he answered all our questions,but above all we had fun….There was so much information coming on to us that it will take some time to put our thoughts down in order….He gave us many tips,that surely if we follow them we will avoid many mistakes…We will try to share with you many of these tips,and I will start today with the one I think it must be a rule to everyone…
He said….”MY MAIN CONCERN IS WHATS UNDER THE SOIL ,RATHER WHAT IS ABOVE IT”.
Thanks a lot Graham and I hope this is only the beginning……

There is no reason to repeat what Savvas has said. We learned so much!
I just hope that Graham can come again next year.
Here are the 3 trees i wired and styled primarily during the workshop:
