New This Month
Next meeting December 3rd – 12.30 pm
The afternoon will kick off from around 12.30pm with donations for the silent auction being arranged on the tables. If you haven’t been to the silent auction before, please bring quality saleable items, mostly bonsai related, but also including wine. Plants are welcome – make sure they haven’t been watered and they don’t have ants in them. This is a good opportunity to clear out the bonsai shed and help the club at the same time. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
Bimer will provide punch, soft drinks and water and mixed sandwiches. You are welcome to bring finger-food that is easy to serve and doesn’t require heating. Chips and lollies are also welcome.
Bidding will stop at 2pm and the winners will collect their items. Please remember to bring plenty of cash and change for the auction. The trade table will not be open this meeting.
There will be a Mega Raffle at the front desk. Please support your club by buying many raffle tickets.
We look forward to seeing you there.
November 5th Morning Workshop – wonderful to see so many members working on their trees! Big thanks for the input from our in-house expert bonsai artists!
The Melaleuca Challenge – Saturday November 5th 1.30 – 4.30pm – WOW!
Bimer Bonsai presented a workshop/demonstration and information about Melaleuca.
The club has acquired a number of Melaleucas that are over 25 years old. They have been dug up and are growing healthily. It was time to utilise them within the club and eventually find them new homes. So 10 club members worked on a Melaleuca with the goal of having a section in our annual show in April 2023 displaying the result.
They will be available for purchase by the artist for only $50 for the large ones and $20 for the smaller. They are worth over $150. If they choose not to purchase them then they will be put up for sale. The club covered the cost of soil and a plastic pot. Take a look at the pictures.
The Bougainvillea Challenge on October 1st – What an Awesome meeting it was!
