October Meeting Report

First of all an apology.  We seem to have lost a few meeting reports.  I am investigating why they have not posted as planned and will hopefully be able to recover them.  Please bear with me on that.

 

Members brought along trees for entry in our club display at the Heathrow Bonsai Show which made up the display table for this months meeting.

 

Octobers meeting was a practical workshop to start a mame/shohin size cascading juniper from nursery stock.

We obtained the material for the practical session from David Cheshire Bonsai , a selection of well rooted Blaauws and  Shimpaku Juniper cuttings.

Mike brought along a few small juniper cascades in various stages of development to show the process and succession,

Members then chose a tree to work on, following steps as explained and demonstrated by Mike.

After two hours of concentrated work, everyone had managed to produce a piece of material with good trunk movement and well placed branches, ready for further development over the next couple of years.  We will be scheduling a follow up session in next years calendar.
