2015 BSV Exhibition and Prizes

Over the weekend of the 10 and 11 October, the Bonsai Society of Victoria conducted its Annual Exhibition at the Box Hill Town Hall and invited the public to view an excellent range of bonsai grown and styled by its members.  Trees, pots and other bonsai accessories were also on sale.

Many thanks to all the members and service providers for their assistance in setting up, running and dismantling the Exhibition and to all the visitors for their interest and support.

Best Tree in the Show was judged to be tree number 37 exhibited by John.  This  tree has been trained for over 35 years in a classic broom style.  Congratulations to John for an excellent display.

Best Tree in the Show – English Elm

Visitors attending the Exhibition also get to vote for their favourite tree.  The competition is intense and in 2015, the People’s Choice was awarded to Pat for her group of Coastal Tea Trees.  For those of you familiar with Tea Trees in nature, tree number 49 is a very realistic representation of a tea tree group.
