Roots, Shoots & Tips

Our monthly meeting is Saturday, October 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the church, 10 Higby Rd, Utica.

The program: Chinese Elm Presentation by Carl Hoffner & Bring-Your-Own-Tree Workshop

Carl Hoffner has been growing elm bonsai for over 30 years. He will be talking about planning and developing an elm bonsai from a seedling to maturity. Bring yours in for advice or to work on.

Bring a tree (not just Elms) for advice and/or some seasonally appropriate work. This may include planning for the future of your tree, perhaps some styling and wiring. Bring your tools! Club wire will be provided.


Last Month

Last month was also a bring-your-own-tree workshop!

  


Bonsai Study Group

Big thank you to D'Alessandro's Nursery! Last month we finished up our study group sessions with a bring-your-own-tree workshop. The nursery has provided a great place for us to scout out new trees, get new people involved, and collaborate with friends. It has been a joy to attend the program! D'Alessandro's will still be carrying Bill Jones’ bonsai soil, starter plants and bonsai pots.

 


Member News!

Deverie Hunt and family will be expecting a baby boy in March!

 


Seasonal Cautions!

We will be discussing these needs in the coming weeks and months. Don't be overwhelmed with all the details. It is not that complex. Get to know your trees — we can help.
