Terry Adams has been presented the Federation of British Bonsai (FoBBS) Award for distinguished service to the Art, Craft and Science of Bonsai.
He is a well established bonsai artist and renowned for his dedication and attention to detail with the development of his trees. Many of his trees are then displayed at all the main Bonsai events throughout the Southern part of England, Wales and Europe.
He has also been a great promoter of British native trees as bonsai and has demonstrated a great flare for his artistic representation of actual trees in nature. He has then taken his study of trees in nature, to a new level by giving instructional lectures on the subject. Some of his tree histories are under the Members tree section on this site and are worth a look, particularly his Gray Alder, which he grew from seed about 25 years ago.
He now joins Reg Bolton [Swindon Hon Club President] in this accolade and deservedly so. He is now a lifelong member of FoBBS.
Unfortunately, Terry was away in America when Reg attended an RHS function in London towards the end of March 2011 and collected the ‘Holford Gold medal’ on behalf of the Federation of British bonsai for their bonsai display at Chelsea in 2010.
The tree awards were sponsored by Dai-ichi bonsai, Newbury & Redditch & were presented by Tony Tickle. About 350 people attended this wonderful display. We hope that everyone enjoyed it.
These are a selection of trees exhibited at the show, first some of the Swindon trees and then a selection of others.
Below are a selection of the club trees exhibited on the FOBBS stand.
