Preparing Bonsai for Shows Workshop

10 people attended the Club’s first interim workshop at this Reporter’s home on 23 June 2013.

Typically, for  a British mid-summer day,  it was windy and showery with occasional bursts of sunshine, but this did not dampen members’ enthusiasm as trees of all sizes and varieties were brought into the garden for a pampering session as final touches in trimming, shaping and top dressing were applied to prepare the exhibits  for forthcoming public Club shows.

Not only trees in final stages of preparation for showing were viewed, but other specimens were discussed for problem solving and future potential.  The convivial and relaxed atmosphere  made it easy to for members to share experiences, ideas and pass on hints and tips to each other.  There was much laughter – especially when Frank was blamed for bringing down the rain!

A friendship meal around a table while the worst of the weather passed outside, saw everybody enjoy being together and exchanging all sorts of views on life in general.

A warm and sound Thank You to those who supported this event, a new venture in our programme, and Good Luck with the forthcoming Club’s displays at:

Wigston Bonsai Club’s Annual Show at Leicester University Botanical Gardens, Glebe Road, Oadby, Leicester on Sunday, 30 June 2013 from 10am.

Wigston Bonsai Club’s Display and Accent Plants Competition at Bosowrth Annual Flower Show, Bosworth Park Showground, Leics on Sunday, 7 July from 10am.
