WHO WE ARE
This Website is presented by EASTLEIGH BONSAI SOCIETY.
Eastleigh Bonsai Society is a based in Eastleigh, Hampshire, where we help our Members develop their understanding of bonsai. Bonsai is an approach that combines art, craft, hobby, horticulture and science to allow individuals to grow small trees; these bonsai acquire an air of presence and age, thereby creating the illusion of an old tree set in its landscape. We meet regularly to share knowledge on developing our bonsai. We also present our bonsai displays at shows for others to enjoy.
This website allows us to reach our Members and share information with others who have an interest in bonsai. We hope you find the information useful and that your visit to our website is enjoyable.
If you want to find out more, or have a question that you are looking for some guidance on, you can contact us on this website using the form on our Contact page.
