New watering tools

These japanese products are of great help in regular watering and feeding of trees in small containers. Both, watering can and nosepiece provide an extra fine spray that doesn't take of the surface soil from bonsai pots. I also spend less fertilizer when fertilizing trees with liquid fertilizer. Their performance is second to none. I am very satisfied. Five stars out of five. Just great :)

Spring meeting in Feltre with Mauro Stemberger - FOTO

It was great to see Mauro's fantastic collection of masterpieces, to be in Mauro's "Bed & Breakfast" facility which has beautiful conditions to work with trees, and, of course, it was great to have opportunity to learn from such a great and virtuous bonsai creator. Mauro's collection of yamadori raw material is unbelivable.
Thanks once again Mauro, my friend. See you in a few months in Zagreb.
Enjoy the pictures:
