This year heralded the return of the Mame category and award and congratulations to Ritta Cooper for winning this award. There were so many great mame displays but Ritta’s collection of mame trees was sublime and the overall display worked perfectly together.

This was another good year for viewing Shohin and Mame bonsai at the Swindon Winter Image show 2017, with some fabulous miniature examples of tree species maintained in the smallest forms in the cutest ways possible. Congratulations to everyone who had a Shohin or Mame in the show and also check out some of the… Read more »
