Roots, Shoots & Tips

Saturday, June 9 - Bring-Your-Own-Tree Workshop
Bring your trees for advice and/or some seasonally appropriate work. Don’t forget your tools.

We will also be planning for our July show at MWPAI, so this is a great opportunity to discuss presentation of your show trees for the exhibition. Don’t let being a newcomer discourage you from participation in the show! Last year, our “in progress” display was a big hit.

The club show will be at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute; Saturday, June 30 & Sunday, July 1,  10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Set-up hours will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Bonsai demonstrations/talks are scheduled for 2:30 p.m. in the Sculpture Grove both Saturday and Sunday.


Last Month

Many thanks to Art Doremus, who led a discussion on spring pinching and pruning during our May meeting. He covered different types of trees, including larch, juniper and maples. If you have more questions on your particular tree, please bring them up at this month’s workshop.

We also discussed our outreach though the website, newsletter and social media, and received some great feedback to help us make improvements. We would really like to increase participation on our Facebook page. If you would like help learning to navigate and follow our Facebook page please bring your device to the June meeting.
