Ray Egan, Bud Garden CentreBud Garden Centre – Ray Egan

"At bud we love Bonsai and all things related. We regularly host meetings of the Munster Bonsai Club, usually the second Saturday of each month with mid-week evening meetings in Summer. We stock Akadama and other potting media, as well as styling wire, pots and other Bonsai sundries. We are constantly widening our range and can often source difficult to find items."

Ray also has a tremendous amount of knowledge on Bonsai and, in addition to meetings and workshops being held there, you can also book 1:1 sessions with him.



Bonsai Eejit – Ian Young
Ian Young is an excellent Bonsai teacher and regularly hosts workshops at Bud Garden Centre. He has a particular interest and talent for Kusamono, Shitakusa and Kokedama.


Saruyama Bonsai – Peter Warren
"After completing a traditional six-year apprenticeship in Japan under my master, Mr. Kunio Kobayashi at his world famous nursery in Tokyo, Shunkaen Bonsai Museum, I returned to the UK and settled in London, creating a studio and nursery. Since then I have travelled far and wide, teaching and working with bonsai collectors and enthusiasts across the globe on a mission to elevate the art of bonsai. Some of my work has been exhibited at the highest level in Japan, the US and Europe and in November 2013 I created and curated a novel contemporary bonsai exhibition, Natural Flux, held at the Brick Lane Gallery in London.

Alongside working with bonsai, I am a published author and respected translator, regularly featuring in magazines around the world and writing a book published by DK. During my time in Japan I featured regularly on the radio and television and have become a well-known figure within the Japanese bonsai community with strong links to all the major artists and nurseries."
