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

Where the primary branch is thinner than the secondary one, prune back the secondary hard, keep it trimmed back and allow the primary branch to grow unhindered until it has thickened.
