So today I was lucky enough to be invited to collect some pines at Erik Wigert’s Bonsai Nursery. I have been wanting to visit his place for the longest time but finally had a chance to make the nearly 3 hour drive to North Fort Myers.
When I arrived I was amazed on how beautifully arranged his nursery was and the quality of his collection and bonsai material was just wonderful.
They have a nice shop with various bonsai pots and tools along a classroom for training
Here are some photos I took of the nursery and my collected pines
