Trip to Florida - must-see Bonsai places along the way

Post  mwiehn on Tue Nov 17, 2015 8:55 pm

I am heading to Central Florida for Thanksgiving, and for once I am driving, which means I can stop along the way and I can transport trees and pots and stuff back with me (I reserved a larger SUV... just in case..:-)). Are there any must see places along I-75 between Indianapolis and Orlando that are not too far off the beaten path? Bonsai nurseries, nurseries with good pre-bonsai stock in general, or must see places to buy pots and other supplies? Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions.

Go to www.trappist.net

This is a monastery in Conyers, GA with hundreds of bonsai pots. Some tokoname and some beautiful Sara Rayner pots. They also have a whole lot of imported Japanese soils and tools. Their selection of pre-bonsai is limited though. It is 35 minutes north of Atlanta. The monastery itself is beautiful.

Thanks for the suggestion. We ended up not making it there because of the traffic. Several accidents and long traffic jams made us hurry through Atlanta and count our blessings we made it out alive.

You're welcome. You were probably lucky to get out of Atlanta alive.
