Nice gallery. I loved the Bromelie. It sets the screen alight. I was also interested in the Bucida spinosa. They appear to have similar bark to our Crataegus, but the foliage is like Prunis spinosa.
I also noticed that you are using European pots. I have a couple of Klika pots in my collecton. In fact the Crateagus is planted in one.
Very pleased to have seen this gallery. Regards, Peter.

Post subject:  Botany for Bonsai, the Science Behind the Art

In the gallery of Enrique Castano it is mentioned that he has written a book called Botany for Bonsai, the Science Behind the Art. I have searched for it but I can't find it. Does anyone know where this book is sold?

Post subject:  thanks Peter

Yes in did; old bucidas have a rough bark similar to Crataegus, and I like Klikas pots a lot, I visit them in Prague from time to time. My trees still have a way to go, but I think is a good start, I hope to post some very exiting bucidas later in the year.
And yes Rune, I have written the book but it is not out yet, It would be available by ABS later in the year. Hope you enjoy it. Best wishes. Enrique

Here is a new tree I been working recently hope you like it. The balance still needs a bit of work on the left side and I may chage its movement in a few months but for know it shows some promise. Any toughts are wellcome.
