Kirstenbosch Bonsai Show 2010

Every year the Cape Bonsai Kai has exhibited member's bonsai trees at the beautiful and internationally reknown Kirstenbosch Gardens. The exhibition is just before Christmas and is exceptionally well attended. You will find many trees from top bonsai artists on display as well as a collection of Suiseki, natural stone appreciation. Beginners in the club are encouraged to display their trees also so you can see how trees start off and can be developed over years of love and care. A large sales area will provide you with all you need to get started should you wish to take up the rewarding art of bonsai. Experienced growers are on hand should you wish to ask questions and there are regular talks and workshops which run during the 3 days which the exhibition is open to the public. Hope to see you there in 2011.

Random Bonsai Tip

If surface roots are unequally spread around the trunk or if they are lacking completely you can drill holes and insert match sticks or make deep scars around the base of the trunk on the side where the roots are needed below soil level. Apply hormone powder and sphagnum moss; cover with plastic and keep moist. Leave for 6 months to 1 year for the roots to develop.
