January 2020 - Members Pre-Bonsai Trees
At this first meeting of Northamptonshire Bonsai Society for 2020 we invited members to bring along a tree for discussion about the owner's ideas for styling of the tree, with a view to improving this tree during the following year. This included pre-bonsai as well as some more established specimens.There will be opportunities during the year to present the tree at meetings and workshops to show how the tree is progressing.
Each tree was discussed in detail and members were able make suggestions to the owner on how to proceed. This was particularly useful for the less experienced members as it highlighted faults or challenges, particularly with the pre-bonsai material and ways to improve or remove the faults.
