We seem to have been interested in Bonsai for such a long time. Alan's interest started as a teenager with a little section of the family garden for 'things dug up' on outings. He even had a starter kit in a fibrous pot that the roots grew thro and were then trimmed. He wanted to be a forester but his attention soon turned to looking for anything that moved under rocks and he became a Marine Biologist/Entomologist and now Herpetologist.
