The BONSAI KING - Graham Potter

WOW!  We'd never heard of GRAHAM POTTER until yesterday when we happened to come across one of his videos at YouTube.  He works at, (or perhaps owns) KAIZEN BONSAI in the U.K.  This guy is a true artist, taking cast away stumps, or overgrown and neglected shrubs, and turning them into beautiful bonsai creations.

He's made several instructional videos on his art form, and they are truly inspirational.  Perhaps most fascinating is how he treats the live plants he's working on, carving at them with power tools, hollowing out their centers, and burning them to achieve the look he's after.

None of us here at B'z Greenhouse have ever tried our luck at making a bonsai, but after watching these videos we'll be keeping an eye out for interestingly shaped plants that may come into our possession...just in case!

We've placed these videos here because we think ANY plant lovers will find them as fascinating as we did.  Whether you're in to bonsais, or not, this guy is definately worth watching...
