Shohin-bonsai Europe | Morten Albek



Shohin in Bonsai Focus


Native material for Shohin bonsai will be featured in a new series of articles by Morten Albek, in the International bonsai magazine, Bonsai Focus.


There are many great imported Shohin bonsai, but you can also do it with native sources like Boxleaf Honeysuckle, Spiraea, Crabapple and others.












The national organization Shohin Bonsai Danmark

is now established.


We look forward to see you at our events and workshops, were everybody are welcome. The website is on air from November the 1st, with all content in Danish and English language. Join us and be part of Shohin Bonsai Danmark through the website. Shohin bonsai in Denmark has grown considerably through the last 10 years, and today more people have a special interest in this part of bonsai. We find the time right to help developing this further through workshops, exhibitions, online information i.e., and taking part in bonsai activities. We look forward to work together with everybody who has interest in Shohin bonsai.
