Last friday I went to Zürich and visited a friend. On my way I passed by the Gartencenter Zulauf in Schinznach-Dorf with is the biggest bonsai nursery in Switzerland that I know and purchased two plants: a shohin ulmus parviflora and a pre-bonsai podocarpus for Fr. 38.- each. Hopfully they are worth the money.
Saturday I whent to my trusted aquarium vendor and I passed by another garden center. Blumenmarkt Dietricht in Gampelen is huge however the sales forces are very frendly and helpfull. I was searching for a cotoneaster which I anways wanted to own since I started with bonsai. To my disapointment I find out that cotonaster are prohibited in Switerzland sind 2002. Wikipedia can tell you more.
