We love taking about the weather here in the UK, it is practically a national pastime. I am going to elaborate a little into bonsai, I think it is important to talk about failures, as well as successes. Hopefully we can learn from these experiences and improve. A really important part of bonsai culture is observation. But sometimes things are beyond control. I have always had a thing for Prunus mume, Japanese Apricot or Ume.
David Cheshire AKA Bonsaidave joined us for the evening of show preparation. He provided loads of much needed supplies, advice and a van full of Akadama. We really appreciated him visiting and coming along to our club night so, thank you Dave.👍🏻
Tree of the month takes on a different theme for December in Swindon. The points this month don’t count towards the competitor’s league status; but this doesn’t seem to dampen the competition in any way.
The brief (as last year) was to decorate a bonsai with a Christmas theme. Winner gets a prize.
This was a fun evening dedicated to accent plants and all things alpine and accent like. It was great to have Parnham Bungalow Plants visiting so we could all buy some great alpines to expand our accent collections.
