Hi, I’m Michael Hagedorn and I live in Portland, Oregon, USA. Some eons back (8 years ago) I was an apprentice under Shinji Suzuki in Japan. When I got home I wrote a book about that comedic period and published it under the title, Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk. A bedroom in my house is now sagging under the weight of hopeful copies, so if you want several boxes please let me know.
I’m also the founder of the Portland Bonsai Village, which is still a young, green, nubile shoot but we hope it will continue to grow and become one of those heritage trees that arc out over a neighborhood and have cool labels on them and such.
And as the title suggests, you ask me anything. Well, almost anything about bonsai, very little about tango, and almost nothing about everything else.
I will begin answering questions on the morning of April 24th.
UPDATE: Questions are now closed - thank you to everyone for participating!
