Overwintering Techniques
By Harvey Carapella

Our February meeting will feature Harvey Carapella who will be talking about the Rock Plantings style of bonsai. Harvey will demonstrate and the finished planting will be raffled off at the end of the meeting. He will have examples of rock planting bonsai to look at and talk about. You will find out about the artistic, philosophical, horticultural, and technical process of designing, planting, and maintaining a rock planting bonsai.


In this style the roots of the tree grow in matter contained within the cracks and holes of the rock. The shaping of the tree can be wild and irregular like that of trees facing harsh winds in high altitudes, or the tree may show a closer relationship to the rock’s shape, growing close to the rock and following its contours.


Come and find out about caring for your Shohin bonsai
and lots more great information!
