Explore ancient art of Bonsai

Bonsai Club members meet to share information with each other

The Campbell River Bonsai Club will present its annual Bonsai Display at Sybil Andrew’s Cottage on Saturday, June 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Bonsai (pronounced “bone-sigh”) is the ancient art and science of growing a tree in a pot. Almost any tree can be coaxed into miniaturization, through careful pruning of both roots and branches, as long as the leaves will reduce in size.

Bonsai Club members meet to  share information with each other about the best kind of potting mix, watering regime, fertilization, special tools and pots. They are pleased to share this knowledge with the public at the Show.

Ask questions to any member as you admire the variety of Bonsai trees.
