Below you can see the large bogwood that Peter will be using in his demonstration, planting up a larch group from the plants on the right. Should be an amazing demo
One of the traders who makes pots will be doing a demonstration during the day too.
The plants (‘accents’) which are displayed with bonsai, are a special love of our members and we shall have a full display of these charming arrangements in our club display room. These appeal to non-bonsai growers as well!
Other societies will be displaying and there will be a special exhibition in the main room on the ground floor of invited guests’ bonsai of various sizes. These come from around the country.
There are many places to stay in the area and early September is a lovely time of the year for a weekend break! Happy to say the Kingskerswell bypass is now working very well and considerably shortens the journey to Torbay.
Be aware that if your satnav is not up to date, the postcode for Lupton House TQ5 0LD might take you to the rear entrance via A379 which is not accessible. The main gate will be signed with two of our banners, so you can’t miss it if you stick to the Brixham Road A3022!
Look forward to seeing you!
