University of Bonsai

The 13th edition of ‘Bonsai van het Westen’ was held again in the Botanical Garden of Delft University of Technology. With a record number of visitors and perfect weather we were given two days to enjoy the beautiful trees of local associations Rijnmond, Koya, South Holland, Studio Deshima and The Bonsai Factory. Bonsai Plaza and Edokoi had filled in the remaining spaces. This year a number of bonsai enthusiasts had registered individually to show their trees to the public. A grand demonstration were given by Carlos van der Vaart, Dan Snipes en Martin Bonvie, Hans van Meer . An impression of the event.
