Hi all Solent Bonsai Society members and friends .

The 2020 Bonsai Year starts with our yearly auction on 31st January 2020, so any trees, pots, books etc. you wish to move on please bring them along. There should be a good selection of plants, pots, books, etc. to choose from, so don't forget to bring your money, 10% of the sales goes to club funds. Don’t forget there is a Tree of the Month competition for January.

Please Note, Sunday 26th January 2020 is the Auction Run by the UK Bonsai Association which is before our first meeting of 2020, and is in conjunction with a Suiseki / Saikei / Mame show. Robert will have a display of Mame and Arthur, Eddie and myself will be showing some of our Suiseki stones.

Next month’s meeting, on February 28th, Solent Bonsai Winter Image Show , this gives members a chance to show other members some of the trees that they have, discuss and get advice on their trees, so please bring them along, it's always a great evening that everyone enjoys. This is a free evening so don’t forget bring along family and friends, all are welcome.

Secretaries Report

Well here we are starting the 2020’s. We at the Solent Bonsai Society, look forward to an exciting year and it will not be long before spring, when we start to see the new buds springing into life again on our Bonsai's, which for me is the best time of the Bonsai year when you can start to plan the next stage for each of our bonsai trees.
