Cape Bonsai Kai Show 2012

Cape Bonsai Kai Show

Admire over 100 beautiful examples of this ancient art at the Sanlam Hall in the beautiful gardens of Kirstenbosch, many of the bonsais being indigenous species. Take a look at the trees that were on display in 2011.

Also, through demonstrations, learn how to design and care for your living creation from some the country's best aficionados – as well as stock up on the necessary material and equipment.

Saturday December 15 to Monday December 17, 9am to 5pm daily. No charge other than the obligatory fee to enter Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Joining us at 11.30am Sunday December 16, the Tamashii Daiko Group, are giving an exciting performance of Taiko – the Art of Japanese Drumming.

Random Bonsai Tip

Straightening training wire - For those who don't know and for those who have forgotten - to straighten training wire that has been removed from a tree, grasp each end of the wire with a pair of pliers and jerk apart. Alternatively, grasping one end of the wire in a vice, and the other with pliers is much more effective as then it is possible to rub the shaft of a screwdriver up and down the wire getting rid of the small bumps.
