Hi all,

Two weeks ago I visit a very good friend : Jean-Paul Polmans . He has a outstanding bonsai collection in Belgium.

Just to share some images of his bonsai garden.

Hi Jun,

Belgium is a cold country Smile Anyway, the trees look very very healthy with this fertilizing program.

Regards and thanks,

Some wonderful trees there. The Eleagnus looks like Mario Komsta's?

Fantastic collection and thanks for posting the pics for us. I am curious as to what time of year you were there when the was such a heavy feeding routine going on. I went to Japan once in the early autumn and noticed a similar pattern of feeding.
With thanks from Craig

MMaruje, you have a very nice collection of trees. Many look like they were imported. Many are yamadori; did you collect them? Your benches look very neat and sturdy. Great set up! How long have you been doing bonsai?
Salut, Todd

Hi Todd,

The collection is not mine... Is from a very friend of mine and bonsai professional, JP Polmans. He lives in Belgium and is a bonsai professional for more than 10 years.

Some trees are really importante masterpieces that are imported from Japan, other ones are european yamadori....

Lovely garden and great trees. Wow! I have rarely seen a Japanese Maple with such massive trunk!! At first glance I thought it was a Trident. Do you know if this was collected or grown in the ground for 3 centuries?? Laughing
