Caravan Bonsai Field Trip to Ft. Lauderdale, March 5, 2016

A Bonsai Field Trip to a Bonsai nursery that is normally off-limits to the general public. An Ichiban Bonsai Kai club member has worked with this nursery for several years and has been given permission to organize and bring bonsai enthusiasts to look around and hopefully buy plants, pots, etc. This nursery is an importer and wholesaler and is not set up with retail in mind. The photos show that this is a warehouse with goods arranged for shipping and not for display. Since it is wholesale, the prices are more than reasonable.
