Grimsby Garden Club Meeting April 27, 2015 - David Culp on Bonsai

Hi everyone,
Our next meeting, the last Monday of the month, will be April 27, starting at 7:00pm.  The evening will have two parts - our Photography Show and Competition, with entries due by between 6:15 and 7:15. 

Our speaker is David Culp.

Bonsai is an ancient Japanese art form using miniature trees grown in containers. Although thousands of years old, the tradition did not come to the West until after the second world war and has become an increasingly popular hobby. Join us for a primer on the cultivation and care of these lovely plants. Learn about the stock available, the soil, tools and containers suitable for bonsai.
