Bimer Bonsai Club Chris Xeppas Workshop & Demonstration
We had a good turn out to see Chris Xepapas from Tasmania working on a Shimpaku purchased by the club. This was styled into a semi cascade tree. Good information was dispensed by Chris regarding the use of Raffia, creating deadwood and also how and why to find the live veins that feed the different branches. It is not recommended to work on a tree at the same time it has been root pruned as it can put a lot of stress on a tree. Aftercare becomes vital in these regards. We will keep you informed of the progress of the bonsai.
