On Saturday 14th April we held our Saturday workshop under the guidance of Chris Thomas, Gerry and Bob from Dragon Bonsai. We now usually hold this twice a year and we always look foreward to these two days.
Hi all due to my mum being ill I couldn’t attend the last meeting but Clive told me it was a good & lively meeting.Thanks to Sally for collecting the money etc & to Anthony for doing the kitchen duties.I hope to be at the next meeting!

February was a busy month for the club certainly our guest speaker John Trott generated some healthy discussion points also helped by Amelia ( I must get you to speak more often as you hide little gems from us ) Interestingly the more we talk to our home grown experts and other clubs we seem […]
Our February meeting was a talk & practical on repotting given by John Trott.Members were asked to bring in trees that had problems or faults which needed sorting.We laid out the tables in a circle & John worked his way around each tree discussing each one & then letting each member work on their tree.
