Neil Hutchings opened Springfield Bonsai Nursery in December 2009. In the heart of Devon, just north of Dartmoor. The nursery is easily accessible being just a quarter of a mile from Woodleigh Junction on the A 30. Less than 10 miles from Exeter. Junction 31, M5.
Neil has had a lifelong interest in trees. This progressed into growing bonsai and later developed into a fuller understanding of the Art of Bonsai. Much of this progress was as a result of the knowledge and experience gained from joining Cornwall Bonsai Society in 1987 and from visiting several of the leading bonsai nurseries in Japan, including Mansei-en in Omiya Bonsai Village and the Hana-ki Centre near Kanuma (Satsuki Azaleas).
Neil remained a keen member of Cornwall Bonsai Society for several years before taking up the role of Chairman for two years.
