Tonights club night was a buzz with pruning, everyone bought in their bonsai trees to work on and there was a hive of activity and discussion throughout the evening on pruning techniques, styling and how everyone was coping with keeping up watering in this heat wave.
Hope you have your table booked if you are planning on selling any bonsai or bonsai related items at the up coming Bonsai Tree Sale on Sunday 29th July 2018 at Staverton Club, Trowbridge, BA14 6PA. Below are a few images from last years successful bonsai tree sale and contact Tony Oswin for more details on 07776338899 or to book your pitch. If you are wanting to come along to buy bonsai then the sales start at 10am until 4pm but come early to get a bargain. Parking is available on site as well as refreshments and make sure you look around the whole site area as there will be more traders than previously to visit and buy lots from, so hope to see you there.
Today Salisbury Bonsai Club celebrated 30 years of bonsai with friends and fellow bonsai enthusiasts and hosted their anniversary show. There were two bonsai styling demonstrations performed by Malcolm Driffield who was able to step in at short notice for both sessions, so thank you Malcolm. Plus an auction run by Chris Thomas, a raffle and some great bonsai displays from Salisbury Bonsai Club and visiting clubs and societies.
This was the final Milton Lilbourne Summer Fayre at present, but it was a great show and the weather was superb, cream teas a delight and the overall day a great success. We had fun pruning trees, talking about bonsai and generally it was a good day out. A few images from the day are below.
