Angus MacGyver would create bonsai with duct tape and a Swiss Army Knife. We have more options, but innovative techniques are a big part of bonsai and MHBS members will share theirs at the Feb. 23 club meeting in Voorheesville. Those techniques might come in handy as teams design trees by round robin.
More to come on March 30 with slab plantings at PFM Bonsai. On April 14 a Roy Nagatoshi demo is planned. Mary Madison shares her encyclopedic knowledge of tropicals on May 18, Pauline leads a Potentilla workshop on June 29, and — now that we’re experts at building them — outdoor stand building happens at PFM Bonsai on July 27.
