Reasonable prices, I think these will get snapped up quickly. It's sad when you have to give up a collection like this that you have cared for for years.

There are no prices stated. :)
"Price start from $450." I expect most he is looking for more.

And further to what I said you don't get a collection like that in that amount of time using the hard graft route that the rest of us are taking, they would have all been purchased originally from some other mug that really did take the hard road :lol:

astro after i read this i gave the bloke a call,

i was interested in the trident and the root over rock pine,

trident was $5500 and is apparently a 5 man tree.
and the pine $1500

he said the other smaller tiger barks were around $450.

the prices are correct for the quality but was more then i expected,

G'day,

I just got back from visiting the seller of these trees. Mii is a lovely guy and this is a genuine sale. He is moving to Tasmania for work and due to quarantine laws, he can't take his collection. Boy is he gutted! He has spent over 20 years growing a lot of these trunks and most of the hard work has been done. What you are buying here is really good bases - I repeat... REALLY good bases! There are some imported figs (you know the ones from Thailand with the massive bases), some fantastic JBP root over rock and a few trees that I recognise as being formally owned by **Anonymous** of Castle Hill ;) . Mii learnt bonsai from his father who was a successful commercial grower in Vietnam.

Here are some pictures I snapped while there;

Prices start at $450 and go up to $5500. There are no bargains but in my opinion, they are fairly priced.

Mii can be contacted on 0433 600 500. He leaves for Tas on 20th November so everything must be gone by then.

Regards,
Steven

No, I'm just looking at the pictures :D Not sure if he is posting interstate but out of my budget anyhow. Stunning tree's though. If I lived close by I would go and have a look for sure.
