Swindon Project Elm 2020

Thank you to all the club members who have joined in with this years project Elm. Sixteen members have taken up this years challenge to grow, develop and style the allocated Chinese elms as per the images below. Will update on this post over the next few months to see how they are progressing.

Trees of interest

We didn’t have a tree of the month at our last meeting. It was our Annual General Meeting. Members still brought in trees that looked at their seasonal best though.

Club meet

The first workshop of a new year. This is the time do essential winter maintenance on bonsai. Removing non-required wire takes time. Structure pruning as an ideal time to see any less desirable branches. I guess you could call it a winter check-up.

Christmas get-together

This year we decided to have another Christmas meeting, more under the pretext of getting together for some food and a chat, than a conventional meeting.
