Chojo Feature Trees

Come and experience the wonder of bonsai, now open at Cloudehill.

Bonsai artist, educator and demonstrator Jeff Barry is the passionate force behind the  Chojo Feature Trees nursery. His masterpieces grace the prestigious National Bonsai and Penjing Collection of Australia, where he earned the esteemed title of the inaugural Artist in Residence.

Why practice the art of bonsai?

Let’s face it, with more than 70% of Australians living in major cities, most of us are quickly running out of space. Most decks, patios, balconies and courtyards are suitable to grow a basic bonsai collection of five to ten trees.

Although bonsai can require frequent watering during summer, the quantity is typically far less than in open ground. Techniques such as submersion can be extremely efficient as warmer and dryer weather patterns emerge.

Reconnecting with nature

We live in a fast-paced, device-driven world. Many people have never grown a vegie garden, taken notice of rainfall or watched a sunrise. Nurturing a bonsai has many benefits, but one of the greatest is helping align oneself with Mother Nature.
