Club member and Bonsai expert, Barry Lacey, was the guest speaker at our first meeting for 2019. Barry demonstrated how to prune a cypress and wire it to obtain the desired shape. He also re-potted a jade by pruning unwanted growth and reducing the root ball.
The old ironing board is perfect for the job as Barry can raise or lower it according to the task in hand!
New club members, Martin and Glenda, were delighted to win the bonsai donated by Barry as a raffle prize.
Members were invited to visited Barry and Jennifer’s home on the Saturday following the meeting to view their large collection of bonsai.
