Surry Heath Bonsai Society put forward a slightly different bonsai display this year combining three elements into the display. They had a shohin display along side a Blackthorn tree in flower set within a white circle frame and a chuhin display on the right hand side.
Glynderi Bonsai Club is a very well established bonsai club and they put forward an amazing collection of Larch this year for their display at Swindon Winter Image Show. It takes a lot of confidence to do a single species display but they have a great collection of different larch styles and sizes to make a very unique and interesting display.
This years Newbury Bonsai Society display was put together by Dave Cleveland, Sally May and Mark Kerry. There were four main trees on the display with accompanying accents.
Swindon Bonsai Society has become an affiliate member of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). As part of the benefits of now being an affiliate member we have taken out their club insurance too.
This was following a review of insurance policies from a range of sources with a view to ensuring we are getting the most appropriate cover for our club needs. It also allows us to join in with the leading horticultural society in the UK and further represent bonsai on a national scale.
If you fancy seeing some fabulous bonsai all in one location as well as a diverse array of bonsai traders then why not go to the bonsai open weekend at Lodder Bonsai. It is on this weekend on the 9th and 10th March 2019 and everyone is welcome to visit.
Aka Matsu School of Bonsai was the overall winner of the visiting clubs and societies display this year at our show so thank you to Jim Butterworth and Bryan S and all the team for a great display.

Warminster Bonsai Society display was designed and selected by Clive Harber who is the show manager and supported by Clive Knight. He prepares the display well in advance of a show asking club members to bring in trees for the selection process prior to any exhibition to work out the most harmonious combination of trees for the space available.
A great display bonsai was presented by Phoenix Bonsai at our show this year with very clean lines and good space separating each tree. You could really appreciate them individually as well as they made a very good compositional display together. The Davallia fern used as a hanging accent was a real treat and added to the overall display brilliantly.
This year Ashfield Bonsai Club put on a display at our Show and they cleverly divided up their table allocation with bamboo canes to create smaller separate displays. This helped to show case the trees really well and there were some really high quality trees on display.
