2014 January Saturday Styling Review

BSV Members kicked off the 2014 year with an interesting range of trees in various stages of development.  As is often the case, a wide range of styling options were proposed and discussed.  The “start again” option did not feature strongly but there were many suggestions for minor and major adjustments that will require further thought by the tree owners.  The contentious issues often related to pot type and colour.

Members are reminded that the 2014 February Saturday Review Meeting has been cancelled as the normal venue is not available.

Bonsai enthusiasts across Melbourne are facing a week of extreme heat over the next week and will be taking extra care to look after their trees.  Lots of water for you and your trees.
