Hout Bay Workshop November 2011

The venue for November's workshop was Bishopsford Bonsai Nursery in Hout Bay. What a wonderful setting and day it was to get some work done in the company of other enthusiasts and in such inspiring surroundings. It was to be the last CBK workshop for the year and gave opportunity to those who attended to ready a few trees for the coming annual show at Kirstenbosch.

Random Bonsai Tip

So much time is spent on striving towards perfection in the foliage area of trees but little contemplation goes into the area around the nebari. Consider planting your tree at different heights in the pot which might enhance the existing taper and roots. If your tree lacks roots use moss mounded in such a way to suggest underlying roots, or you can even use sticks of similar appearance to the wood of the tree as 'fake' roots until you are able to coerce roots to fill the void. Use appropriate gravel to complete the scene.
