Stewart Beresford at our show

Stewart this year presented a very neat shohin display made up of four fantastic trees and a tiny fern accent. The display was beautiful, clean and simple and well balanced with some very high quality bonsai trees to enjoy up close and set on a wonderful root stand and within a delicate shohin display stand.

Andy Hardman at our show

Andy’s shohin display was a three-tree display with two accompanying accents. It presented a light and well-balanced image with good levels of diversity and interest with a flowering Cherry (Prunus incisa kojo-no-mai) in full bloom on a delicate cascade stand.  With the Juniper (Juniperus) and Elm (Ulmus) were Grape hyacinths (Muscari).

Dennis is one of Swindons long standing club members and he presented a superb Elm tree, which was in a Walsall ceramics pot. He has been working with this tree for 25 years and it has some excellent ramification. He also set up a collection of his Elms with some hand made wooden accent holders, which were very unique.

Andy Jordan at our show

Andy displayed a stunning collection of six shohin trees, five within a shohin display stand and a Juniper set off to the left with an accent.
