Services Information

I am located in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire (Postcode) HP217HA within 20 minutes of the M25/M40.

This means I am within an hour of areas such as London, Middlesex, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Cambridgeshire and Surrey.

Styling Commissions

I offer a complete styling service for bonsai of all stages, sizes and quality. Styled by myself, trees can be brought to me for a range of services including carving, repotting, wiring and styling or refinement.


Styling and/or carving generally takes 2-3 weeks before the bonsai is ready to be picked up or shipped. I have a secure garden as well as heated polytunnel and greenhouse to ensure the health and the security of your tree.


Styling work carried out in this manner is far less stressful to the tree than at a demo or one-day lesson and always results in a superior end-product.


Styling charges range from just GBP£150 to £300 for the most complex styling and carving jobs, and I offer guaranteed quotes, based on the estimated amount of time for the work to be carried out and any materials required. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing the maximum cost before I start.

Lessons/One-To-One Sessions/Workshops

Due to a heavy workload, I am no longer conducting private 1:2:1 lessons in my garden. However, I hold workshops for upto 12 people at a nearby hall in Aylesbury every 4-6 weeks. The workshops are aimed at enthusiasts of all levels, from beginner to advanced, in an informal teaching environment.

You are required to bring whatever tools you own and a few trees that we can work on through the day with the assistance of my apprentices Sean Stolp and Syed Abbas. We are more than happy to work on everything from raw material through to finished trees requiring refinement. Please visit the to find out more details, the next available dates, and to book your place.


Bonsai4me team

Meet The Team! From left to right: myself and apprentices Sean Stolp and Syed Abbas

Bonsai4me currently consists of a core of 5 people who keep things running as smoothly as we can. 

Apprentices Sean Stolp and Syed Abbas have proved themselves invaluable over the years, assisting me at workshops, shows and demonstrations. Both are accomplished artists in their own right and have strong technical abilities.

Sean has worked with me since 2014 and has been doing bonsai for nearly 30 years. Many are familiar with his acquisition of high-end material for bonsai.
Syed has been working with since 2019 and despite only doing bonsai for a little longer, has worked extremely hard in that time and become something of a maestro when it comes to wiring. 


Behind the scenes: Ninoslav Pirš and Paul.

Ninoslav has been the designer for Bonsai4me and B4MePublishing since 2009 and has been responsible for each and every book release, logo design, T-shirt and graphic we’ve used since then. He runs his design company from his home city of Zagreb, Croatia.

Last but not least is Paul who has been working behind the scenes at Bonsai4me since 2018, building various parts of the garden, boxing and shipping trees and hands-on work on my trees.
