Japanese Trees in the Garden of England

Whitstable Bonsai Weekend

1 Comment

The two day show at Nick Pearce’s was well attended by the public. A number of members contributed to the display and there was a lot of sharing of display stands, jitters and accent plants and a number of the shohin compositions were joint efforts. Sam led the placing of the trees, hindered by les and Keith, this was his first effort at show managing and I think he did a good job despite the help he had from others!

The Saturday was reasonably mild and Nick had even arranged for the Red Arrows display team to do a fly past!!. Personally I think it was coincidental as they were n their way to do a display on Folkestone!

Another successful display by the club and many thanks to all who contributed by submitting trees or helping to set up and man the display, particularly Keith who was on the stand both days describing the trees to people and trying to encourage new members to come to the club
