Bonsai Saturday

The Campbell River Bonsai Club presents its annual display at Sybil Andrew’s Cottage on Saturday.

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. Please feel free to ask questions to any member.

The show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the cottage in Willow Point – just south of the carving competition. Admission is free.
