The practice of bonsai, especially outside of Japan is not a settled practice. We should always be exploring, learning and experimenting for ways to raise the level of our practice in our own back yards. As a suggested discussion topic, I’d like to invite you all to share something new you’ve been trying this year. It could be seedlings or cuttings you started, a new fertilizer or pest/disease mitigation, automatic watering system, a new tool, pruning technique/timing or maybe just a new species or tree you’ve added to your collection. Even though every garden is slightly different, we all grow our bonsai in the Northeast Ohio environment and can benefit from the collective experience that I hope you will share with the group.
Saturday August 26th 9:30-11:30am at Rockefeller Park Greenhouse.
750 E. 88th St. Cleveland in the indoor classroom.
Our first meeting of the year is Saturday January 27th at 9:30am. We have a special presentation lined up. Member Martin Reuben will give us a tutorial and demonstration on photographing bonsai at home. Tips and techniques will be shared for getting the best results using natural light and cellphone cameras so this will be accessible and useful for all. Some basic editing will also be shown. Members are invited to bring a tree to be photographed during the demo. The meeting will take place in the classroom at Rockefeller Park Greenhouse.
