2018 BSV September Saturday Program

With longer days and warmer weather, our trees are slowly entering the spring growth phase and generating much work for bonsai enthusiasts.  Unfortunately, the weeds are also strongly responding to these changes generating even more work.

BSV Members met at our normal venue to work on their trees and seek advice and guidance from other members; and to have a chat and catch up.  Repotting, re-styling and trimming activities were the main focus.  A very productive afternoon was had by all.

Photos of many of these activities are included below.
