Art of Saikei with Craig Jurd and a Saikei Challenge
Craig is Australia’s foremost expert on Saikei and has been in bonsai for over 35 years
Saikei is not only a form of artistic expression but also a means of connecting with nature and appreciating the beauty of landscapes on a small scale. It encourages a deep understanding of horticulture and the principles of landscape design. Creating saikei compositions requires a blend of artistic vision, gardening skill and a keen eye for balance and detail
Our meeting on 8 October was about Bonsai Techniques.
Some of our experienced members demonstrated and explained how to do :
Approach Graft, Thread Graft, Air Layer, Propagate by Cuttings and Propagate by Seed
Reminder – memberships were due mid-year and can be paid by direct deposit
