Programme

 

We would like to welcome you to the Northamptonshire Bonsai Society (NBS).
Come along to a monthly meeting and meet friendly fellow bonsai enthusiasts
2021 - During COVID restrictions... 

Until we can resume normal meetings, each month we are watching a video (in our own time)

followed by meeting via Zoom video conference on the dates below at 7pm to discuss it.

Details of how to join the Zoom meeting will be e-mailed to each Northamptonshire Bonsai Society member

January 7th           7pm Zoom meeting to discuss the following videos

The first short video is by Heike van Gunst, a lady I have to admit I had not heard of before I saw this video. Nevertheless she has an undoubted talent and an internationally recognised track record for excellence in creating bonsai.

For those of you who might not be quite so interested in decisions surrounding pot choice, perhaps this second video would be more to your liking. This is another well respected bonsai grower who some of you will no doubt know of by the name of Walter Pall. In this 8 minute video Walter talks about the correct way to develop thicker trunks in your bonsai, and a little of the science and reasoning behind his success.
