The Second October meeting will feature Bonsai Basics. We are trying a different approach for this meeting Six of our more experienced members will be talking about an important aspect for growing bonsai. Each will have about 20 minutes to talk about their  individual  topics.  Questions are most welcome. This is your opportunity to see, hear, and learn about:

  • Watering with Mark Arpag
  • Soil with Brian Heasley
  • Fertilizer with Will Hebert
  • Wiring with Alan Adair
  • Overwintering with Harvey Carapella
  • Wrap up with Bill Valavanis
  • This meeting is designed to give you a basic understanding of the art of bonsai, and better equip you with the skills necessary to successfully grow in this hobby. Hopefully this instruction will help to remove the mystery of bonsai.
