November Weekend Workshop: Air-layering

With the arrival of warmer weather, Members were very focussed on managing spring growth.  A group of Members were being introduced to some of the basics of bonsai by Victor and Robert. Air-layering is a great technique for improving your trees or quickly developing advanced trees.  

November/December is a time that suits air-layering on most varieties of trees and experts were on hand to guide members through the air-layering process. See examples below.Other trees under development at the workshop are included below.
