Introduction I am often asked when and why I got hooked on bonsai in the first place. My first memory goes back to a rainy holiday around 1950 visiting my aunt and uncle. I would like to say that they hired a learned, kind, and elderly Japanese farmer who entrusted me with the ancient oriental secrets of bonsai culture and set me on the path to spiritual enlightenment. However, the truth is more prosaic. Bored, indoors and in rainy weather, and being an avid and compulsive reader of everything from cereal packets to the works of Charles Dickens, I started on the only indoor reading material an encyclopedia set beaten. Luckily it rained for a couple of days, enough time for me to finish a lot of As and Bs (for years I excelled in all subjects from A to B). The only clear impression I retain from this diligent research is bonsai. My imagination was fired, and for weeks my parents had to stick plant pots full of seeds and sprouts to the windows around the house. I searched the local library for more information on bonsai, with no luck. The initial interest, without more fuel, waned. About ten years later I came across “Japanese Art of Trees and Landscapes” by Yuji Yoshimura and Giovanna M. Halford (first published by Charles E. Tuttle in 1957 and still a treasured work, in its thirty-first printing in 1987. was the first major book on bonsai published in English), and the flame of my original interest was rekindled and I soon became addicted. As interest in bonsai grew in the West, more books in English became available, and I bought and studied each one. Slowly but surely, bonsai took over my life to such an extent that in 1979, after nearly twenty years, I resigned from my senior position in the civil service to devote my life to bonsai.
