The annual Trophy in Belgium is broadly thought to be the central EU bonsai present, and deservedly so. I used to be fortunate sufficient to see it in 2015 and felt I’d solely as soon as earlier than seen that stage exterior of Japan, in Taiwan.

Much less recognized to these exterior the EU is the UBE conference and present in Spain. It is a Spain-only present, which given the standard of the timber speaks volumes about how deep a bench the EU presently has.

A lot as I’m happy with our momentum over right here within the Americas, hats off to Spain. Although they’ve very good imports, they’re additionally working with European natives at that very same stage: Sabina Juniper, Scots Pine, Mugo Pine, Olive, Myrtle, Oak and Elm.

In a number of weeks I’ll share photographs from Luis Vallejo’s Bonsai Museum, and others from David Benevente’s backyard—at each places, timber of dizzying magnificence. All in Madrid, Spain. (Which is shorthand to say for those who’re anyplace close to Madrid, keep for a day of bonsai.)
