Best tree/pot combo won by John Pitt

A well-deserved award for John Pitt for the Best Tree / Pot combination especially as his Mugo Pine (Pinus mugo ‘Pumilio’) was in a John Pitt hand crafted pot. Thank you also to Walsall Studio Ceramics for sponsoring this award.

Best Mame display won by Ritta Cooper

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.

The take down after our show

This was fast and furious to say the least and all done by 5.30pm only an hour after the show had finished. Many hands make light work, and it was so true in this instance.

Swindon Winter Show 2019 summary

This year’s show was another success with over 400 visitors and over 100 bonsai trees on display as individual exhibits or part of a club display or shohin or mame display. The show also had a wide range of traders and purchases of bonsai and associated sundries seem to be selling well on the day.
