As one of the largest importers of specimen Japanese Bonsai trees into the UK, you cannot falter to find something that will appeal to all the senses. All year round, the nursery is awash with an array of colour, texture and aroma from the vast variety of Bonsai trees that are on sale here. Each Bonsai tree that is imported has been handpicked by Lee Verhorevoort himself from the vast collections that are available from the best Japanese growers, from Takamatsu in the South of Japan to Nagoya, Osaka and Tokyo until eventually reaching Hokaido in the north of the country. Lee frequently visits Japan to purchase the best quality Bonsai trees, accessories and sundries and thus guarantee that the UK market remains at the forefront of Bonsai outside of Japan.

Lee is able to offer the best advice, training and workmanship having acquired a wealth of knowledge from his time living and working in Japan on various specialist Bonsai nurseries, with some of the most influential Japanese Bonsai tree growers. His repertoire includes refinement, grafting, air layering and field growing to name but a few. This has led to Lee becoming an authority on a wide range of tree varieties and techniques and writing about these in the best selling Bonsai magazines and journals.
