6th, 7th July we had the Chichester Bonsai Show at Manor Nursery.
As usual it was well run by Frank, and his team. On Saturday the weather was very hot and much of
our time was spent watering the trees, on Sunday however it rained for much of the day, on both
days there was a good many people admiring the many trees on show.
There must have been one or two hundred trees on show along with Collette selling trees, Tony
selling pots and Brenda selling her scroll art.
There were seven Societies with displays Chichester, Solent, Eastleigh, Sussex, Middlesex, Wessex
and Eastbourn & Wealden all of which had great displays. Middlesex won best club display, Sean
Nutbeam won best Deciduous with a Hornbeam which also won best tree in show, Robert won best
evergreen with a Japanese black pine, Malcolm Driffield won best group with an Elm group and I
won best Landscape with my larch forest.
