Event description

Basic Bonsai Techniques is an introductory workshop for beginners presented by Tony Bywater, Christchurch Bonsai Society.

Have you ever thought of developing your own Bonsai tree?  Come to this workshop to learn how to do it.  Watch an ordinary nursery tree turn into a Bonsai, then have a go yourself.  Learn what to look for in nursery trees, how to select which branches to keep and which ones to cut off, how to pot it up, and how to look after it.  All good fun, and you get your own Bonsai to take home!  Bonsai is an art form probably started by the Chinese over 2000 years ago, using trees grown in containers or on rocks to represent the beauty and majesty of nature.

The registration fee of $20 covers the cost of the tree, potting mix, grow bags, wire, and morning tea. There is a maximum of 8 places for this popular workshop, so register by contacting Ruth Wood as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

To register, contact Ruth the Lincoln Community Gardens Coordinator, Phone: 021 074 3905 or Email:  

If you are not a beginner then maybe you would like to come to our Bonsai Refresher workshop on 29th April
