2 Experiences with John Armitage – United Kingdom

  • Great all round demonstration. Easy to follow.


  • John is approachable, understanding and generous with your time, a true boon to a rank amateur like myself. I am hopeful that with help I have had from him I will convert my passion and enthusiasm for Bonsai into understanding the Bonsai process and produce some tangible results.
