Bonsai and deciduous trees in the heart of Sassafras
Bonsai is one of those arts that make some incredible things from something ordinary. How is it done? Take a regular tree, or shrub and regularly prune the roots and branches, wiring them downwards to give the illusion and structure of an aged plant. Once they have taken to the new position, the wire is removed. They are in a nutshell, a dwarfed, stunted plant. It is an interest that yields visual rewards unsurpassed.
Craig Forsyth has established a nursery with the focus on Bonsai and more mature deciduous trees. Situated in the Hamlet town of Sassafras, the premises are definitely worth a visit while roaming the shops. Being in the business for about twenty years, Craig started with markets for a few years.
It would be hard to find a more magnificent specimen of mature weeping maple than the one currently in stock. See the attached photo, order another if it is gone.
