Tonights club night was well attended as we were fortunate to have Robert Stewart, Chairman of Solent Bonsai Society talking on his bonsai journey creating, growing, styling and developing mame and shohin bonsai trees. It was a very interesting talk and gave us lots to think about when we are working on our own trees. He inspired us to want to review our trees, as well as take inspiration from nature and look around our gardens for seedlings and he is a keen advocate of developing mame from cuttings. Thank you Robert for a great and enjoyable evening of bonsai. Continue reading Small trees with Robert Stewart

Warminster club display Clive H picked black and white images instead of traditional scrolls, these were to reflect the settings for the trees, some liked the idea others not so keen but praise to Clive for trying something different.
Unfortunately could not get shot with all trees in.
