A great day out for all the family

A great way to spend a day chatting about bonsai while also perusing the multitude of bonsai sales tables to find some bonsai bargains for all levels of bonsai enthusiasts from beginners through to advanced hobbyists. A big thank you to Tony Oswin and the Staverton Bonsai Group for hosting and organising the event as well as the show sponsors Troll Pots, Spectre Pots and Oakfield Bonsai. It was great to see UK Bonsai Association supporting the show too as well as many well-known traders including Collette’s Bonsai, David Sampson of Fine Japanese Suiseki, Chris Thomas, Daniel Butler of Wood and Clay, Oceana Bonsai, Beechfield Bonsai, Probio Carbon and many more. There were also local and not so local bonsai clubs present and many of their members including some from Swindon including Warminster Bonsai Club, Salisbury Bonsai Society, Surrey Heath Bonsai Society, Middlesex Bonsai Society, Chichester Bonsai society, and Blackmore Vale Bonsai Group.

It was a good day at the Shilton Open Gardens on the 12th June, at least it was dry with the marquee up, visitors came thick and fast as they admired the trees. Also lovely cakes washed down with the odd cuppa. Here are the photos of the day, courtesy of Andy…………..

The main traders were Chris Thomas, Collette, Robert Derrick of Oakfield Bonsai and Trevor. The bonsai club and societies with displays were Blackmore Vale, Staverton, Taunton and Warminster with Chris Thomas judging. The winning club display was Warminster Bonsai Club.

Also congratulations go to Adrian Taylor from Taunton and Blackmore Vale clubs as he had the Best in Show Bonsai tree with his Hornbeam group, on the Taunton stand.
