Mr. Giacomo PAPPALARDO was born in Sicily where he started with bonsai.

His first bonsai were Mediterranean plants like olives, junipers and Laricio pines. About nine years ago Giacomo moved to Spain close to La Coruña where he found a totally different climate (Atlantic climate).

In his nursery they grow only conifers like Pinus sylvestis, Larix decidua, Taxus baccata and Picea abies.

Besides this, he prefers mostly to work on Juniperus sabina yamadori and Pinus silvestris.
