GOING PRO

Ever since I started with bonsai landscapes and bonsai in general, I dreamt of doing it professionally one day. Who can imagine more fulfilling life than the one when you do the things you love for living? Fourth growing season later, after reading possibly every bonsai blog I came across back to back, and learning from every other available source like forums, books, videos and most importantly - my mistakes, the time has come to get on with it.
Because I am the kind of person who follows his dreams.
Just as a side bussiness to my regular work at the factory for starters, but it has begun!
I registered at the required offices, went through all the necessary paperworks and opened my own eshop dedicated to bonsai landscapes mostly, but as time goes by I will be offering all the things bonsai related.

NO MALLSAIS though - that is one of my first "Bussiness policy" rules.

This is gonna be new and interesting journey for me and I am very happy about it - and I am looking forward to more learning and creating as now I have another driving force to fuel my passion.

You are all invited to take a look here:

Any feedback is appreciated so do not hesitate to leave me a comment here :)

I will be shipping only nationwide first, but who knows, maybe try EU in coming years too.

We´ll see how it goes.

The good sign is that I´ve sold 3 landscapes shortly before going official, so there might be some demand for this kind of stuff out there after all.

P.S: I am also quite impulsive kind of a guy and all this migth be just a consequence of reading Charles Branson´s book called "Like a Virgin" very recently, but hey - when you don´t try, you´ll never find out what might happen.

wow, it looks amazing. well done.

Questions:
1. what types of other plants works nicely in such a landscape?
I know moss is used often.
I want tot try and do a landscape

2. a tree has to be repotted every 2-3 years. so how do you you do repotting with a landscape?

Thank you :)
Answers:
1. Sedums for example. Avoid grasses and weeds as they spread extremelly quickly.
2. Repotting is easy when there is a landscape with one tree, basically same as with potted trees. With forest plantings you repot the whole thing as one tree, the roots would be totally intertwined. And the rocks are glued to a slab so you do not mess with them.

Good luck Kristof!

If you don't sell to Hungary, can I go and get a nice yamadori myself? :)
