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.
It was another good bonsai show at Wessex Bonsai Club this year with lots of club displays, a good amount of entires into the show and below are a few images from the day. Congratulations to all those who entered the open classes and also those who were fortunate to be winners of their class.
This is our second time coming to a Lodder open weekend, and the display this year was a combination of individual trees and a superb collection of shohin and mame
Superb collection of bonsai trees again on display again this year at our show and it was a tough judging time for our 6 judges and here are the award winners receiving their awards. Thank you to everyone though who had a bonsai tree on display at our show and helped in the set up plus everyone who came to admire them, it made for a very worth while and fun day and continues to be an enjoyable hobby for so many which is great.
