April 2021 Meeting

What a great session our April 2021 meeting was. We had discussions on all things regarding the display of trees capitalising on the great knowledge we have available to our club. Those who attended would have found the discussion informative at a general level and extremely useful when preparing trees for display at our 2021 show on May 1 and 2 at the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

Following the morning workshop, our president gave us a run down on the club program and and also an informative demonstration on preparing a tree for the show. David talked about pots and how to choose the correct pot for your tree and Steve demonstrated how to wire a tree for showing and provided useful tips on moss and how to grow and apply it to a tree. Keith spoke to us about displaying bonsai in a show, the role of stands and accent plants. Tony then provided us with useful tips for photographing our bonsai and the benefits of photographically recording bonsai through their training and development.
