ACTIVITIES-YEAR

EASTLEIGH BONSAI SOCIETY PROGRAMME

Our club meetings are a mix of outside speakers and workshops, with some of our more experienced members sharing their hints and tips on bonsai basics such as re-potting, pruning and care for your trees over the different seasons.

We also participate at various club shows in neighbouring counties, which are always a good source of inspiration and a chance to see the latest pots and accessories
from bonsai traders in Britain and abroad.
