Report on Market Bosworth Show, Leics 05/07/2015

Apols for lateness of report but fortunately others have already contributed on this event.  The Show was our first public display this year.   We had 19 exhibits of which 12 were selected for public voting of best presentation.  There was a great deal of interest from the public and members were kept busy talking about the display and our Club activities.  The bonsai exhibits, which included accent planting, are an indication of the levels of ability in the Club from beginners to those who have many years experience.  A record 438 votes were counted this time and the winner will receive the Club Members’ Trophy at the AGM later in year. 2nd pic shows the winner, Frank’s Acer palmatum group (no.4), and Trevor’s Chinese Elm informal upright (no.5) came 3rd.  The next pic is one of the joint 2nd place exhibits. Olly was also joint 2nd with his Picea group (not shown).  Other pics show Mike’s Salix yesoalpina,  Becka’s Buddhist Pine and her Acer Palmatum, and Frank’s Gingko which were just some of the other examples.  Well done everyone who participated.  Our next public show will be at the Aylestone Horticultural Show, Leicester, on 31 August when we compete with others for best overall club display.
