Congratulations to Mark and Ritta Cooper for winning the Best Chuhin category with their Mountain Maple (Acer palmatum), which was originally from Japan, and they have owned now for 5 years and it is in a Gyozan pot.
Congratulations to Jim Butterworth for winning the Best Deciduous category with his Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) that was on the Aka Matsu club display.
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.
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.
This year was amazing, the club members and volunteers who helped out on the Saturday for the set up did a great job and everything was in place well before 8pm.
