Air layering a eugenia.

A common and inexpensive offering at local greenhouses are eugenia plants with long, straight trunks, often thick with good taper, sporting three green pompoms with bare trunk in between. Stu is going to show us how to get three trees out one using air layering techniques and tell us all about this species of plant and its suitability to train as bonsai.

 

Turning a live christmas tree into a bonsai.

Ryan Neil of Bonsai Mirai wondered if he could turn a ubiquitous tree field-grown for the live Christmas tree market into a decent bonsai. He has offered the bonsai community a free video showing how he styles one of these easy-to-get trees. The video includes a field trip to show us how to select a good specimen, a lecture on design as it pertains to this particular specimen and its possibilities, a demonstration of pruning, primary wiring  and detail wiring. If you like what you see, we can source similar material and try it here.

 

BRING A TREE FOR SHOW AND TELL:

 

Raffle Prizes - trees, bonsai pots and more.

Please bring items to donate to the raffle if you have something bonsai-related you can donate to the club. If you have an item you need help with or for Show and Tell, please bring it along.

 

Guests are welcome!

Guests, please register with the President so that we may look after you better.
