Is it surprising that the last three year’s winners of the Certre International Online Bonsai Awards have been from Italy and that Certre is an Italian company? Maybe, but these are great trees nevertheless and Italy is a hot bed of top tier bonsai. And BTW, the previous two years winners (2008 and 2007) weren’t Italian.
First place 2009 Certre International Online Bonsai Awards. Juniperus Chinensis “Itoi-Gawa” also by Enrico Savini of Italy.
