Hseih Wen Fu

Mr Hseih Wen Fu has been a Master of juniper bonsai in Taiwan for more than 30 years and is well known in the bonsai community. Only recently has the bonsai business become profitable and he has a large debt to repay. He supplements his income by working on clients’ bonsai, especially carving deadwood. He also does garden tree work. This work gives him financial stability, but his real passion is bonsai, in particular junipers. He tells us with a rueful laugh, ‘nobody makes any money from bonsai!’ as he gazes with love round the nursery at his many trees. Mr Hseih Wen Fu is the supervisor of Bali Bonsai and has been an advisor to the Taiwan Bonsai association and Chairman of the Taipei Bonsai association.
