bonsai_scottish_national_collection_01.jpg image BONSAI>BONSAICOLLECTIONOFSCOTLAND>NATIONAL BONSAI COLLECTION OF SCOTLAND - The National Collection of Bonsai in Scotland is based around the "Graham trees" as they are known. Bill Graham, of MayBOLE in Ayrshire was a master butcher, and when he retired he concentrated on creating and collecting bonsai.Over nearly thirty years, he developed his knowledge and his collection of 300 trees,

When Bill died in 1983, his widow donated the trees to the Local Authority Parks Department of Kyle and Carrick so that some them at least, could continue to be displayed at their Annual AYR FLOWER SHOW. Eventually, Patrick Gibb, then principal organiser of the Show, passed the "Graham Trees" to the Scottish Bonsai Association in November 1984. A group of members set up the first ever National Collection of Bonsai in Britain. Mrs Graham then legally gifted the trees to the SCOTTISH BONSAI ASSOCIATION (SBA).

The collection is located at BINNY PLANTS, Binny Estate, Ecclesmachan, West Lothian, Scotland, EH52 6NL.

Entry for Bonsai Nejikan Tree Style  Update this bonsai term Nejikan Tree Style
bonsai_nejikan_01.jpg image NEJIKAN - This "TWISTED Style" is defined by a trunk which grows in a twisted style (but not exagerated into full coils , which is the Bankan style).

The existance of SHARI will exagerate the effect, which in extreme examples can be described as the "barber pole" effect. This is most often seen on juniper where the red BARK contrasts vividly with the pale shari.
