Initiated by Jerome Hay, President of Satsuki Flower and organized with the support of the FFB and kyookaï, this unique event in France aims to reveal to the public, amateurs and professionals, the most beautiful Satsuki in Europe. Nearly a hundred satsuki will be displayed. Through this initiative, we want to support the work of the various federations and also anonymous persons giving them the opportunity to have their Satsuki come to public attention.

The event will be held at 

Le Jardin du levant
St Germain du Pinel, Brittany, France on May 19′ and 20′ 2012.

During this first, important personalities are expected such as Master Hiromi Tsukada, who will honor us with his presence. Applicants wishing to participate at the Satsuki Flower Trophy 2012 can register for free until April 15th, 2012. 


Completely free to enter, participation in the contest will also allow three people to be rewarded by a grand jury composed of members of the FFB, professionals and personalities from the world of bonsai such as Master Hiromi Tsukada.
