16-17 May 2015 – Japanese Maples

Several WBC members travelled to Arnold in Nottinghamshire for this event held at Greenwood’s Bonsai.  The weather was bright if a bit brisk but stayed dry for wandering around the nursery where maples were in their springtime magnificence. In the studio the Tomlinson Maple Collection was on display.  Corin gave presentations on its history and species characteristics.

The occasion was also a book launch for Neil Kenney’s ‘An Illustrated Guide to Japanese Maples for Garden Planting and Patio Pots’ (2015) Larchfield Publications, Wolston. ISBN 978-0-9932133-0-4.  At £14.95, it is a 132 page comprehensive guide on cultivation of maples with beautiful photography.  Neil also gave cultivation demonstrations and did book signings.  There is a chapter on bonsai.
