February Meeting -Potting techniques- When, Why & How

Tree before...

.... during..

...and after the committee aproach to repotting!

Daye Y opened the meeting and meeting and congratulated Ken
for having his tree selected for Best Of British 2011.

Well lots of activity in the room with Dave Y and Dougie M getting stuck in and getting DIRTY also Senior Members Helping out giving advice and passing on their knowledge and I am sure Mark from GD did a roaring trade.

We have been given the go ahead for workshops at Gordales for the last Sunday in the month but since there is work going on at Gordales during February it may be March before it is all up and running.
So it will be up to all to attend at some point when ever possible to make it a success.

Also With GD (Green Dragon ) holding 2 a month there's plenty of opportunity for both Clubs to improve their knowledge and Trees.

Dave Y did stress that not everyone will be attending each one or able to do so its up to us as individuals to attend when we can and work on our trees and help out others (LIKE ME ) who can't tell the difference from one tree to another. [now, now... Jim don't put yourself down.....theres plenty of other that can do that ;)]

New members are always welcome, just come along to one of our monthly meetings at the RAFA club. You can even 'try us out' for a few months before you decide on joining as an official member. The meetings are informal (there's a bar!) and the club members are (mostly) friendly, approachable and happy to pass on guidance and information to anybody interested in bonsai- whatever your level of experience.
