Hi One and All

It was good to see the back of the Snow and Frost as it was a good day weather wise for our First of the Year 2013 Sunday  Of The Month Bonsai Workshop which was held on the 27th January 2013 at Portsunlight Garden Centre here in the Wirral

On scene were Dena,Ron,Doug,Tom,Arthur,Rod,Andy and Mark and what a productive day it was with 21 Bonsai Trees
, consisting of Privet,Larch, Deshojo, other Various Maples, Escalloiana Pines and a few other smaller trees on the Workshop Tables it was sleeves rolled up and plenty of action which included Re-potting, Wiring, Re-positioning of Trees, Branches Re-shaped, Root Pruning and Andy once again doing what he does best helping, encouraging, giving advice and most of ALL Listening to members suggestions and answering questions.

A rather Quiet day and Not a lot of members of the Public around but it was great to see once again Andy and his young son Ryan joining us for a short time at Portsunlight Garden Centre. Everyone work well with helping and listening to each other making suggestions,opinions and exchanging ideas

All that remains for me to say is a Large Thank-you to the Owner's and All the Staff at Portsunlight Garden Centre. for allowing  and welcoming Wirral Bonsai Society  into thier Beautiful Garden Centre

More info about Portsunlight Garden Centre can be found


Until next time look after each other and all your Bonsai Trees

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.
