About Karl

I am a serial hobbyist. I have kept Bonsai for 20 years. Winning the UK New Talent Final in 2012 I subsequently represent the UK at the European final in Slovenia. If you’re considering taking Bonsai up as a hobby… go for it! I’m happy to offer any advice or help you source good quality trees.

I’m a classic car enthusiast and enjoy restoring and driving classic cars. I have owned several over the last 10 years and I currently have a 1952 side valve, splitscreen Series Morris Minor and an MG Midget.

I have 6 tortoises and volunteer at the Internal Tortoise Association.
