David Knittle surveys a workshop Azalea.

David Knittle lurks behind an unsuspecting azalea during his recent MHBS demonstration and workshop at PFM Bonsai. Everything you ever wanted to know about Azaleas was covered and David used a breathtaking Satsuki Azalea he brought along to illustrate his points. Members also brought trees for the display table. Stay tuned for a follow-up post as Mr. Knittle returned to host an exhaustive two day wood carving workshop.

David Knittle: For the Love of Azalea Bonsai

Satsuki Azalea, National Bonsai & Penjing Museum

February 26 at PFM Bonsai
Special Times: 11 am Program, 1 pm Workshop

We know we love azaleas but sometimes we really do not know how to best work with them. Come and learn with David. He is a true expert in the horticulture and art of azaleas. So that we can learn before we work on our trees, we have set the lesson first at 11 AM to be followed by a brief time for BYO lunch and then the workshop at 1 or so. It is the ideal time of the year to reduce the soil mass by half so we will be doing that. Bring aluminum wire for this workshop please and your tools.

UPDATE: David has 3 gal. Azaleas available for the workshop. Cost of the tree is $25, PLUS $30 for the workshop.  Maximum of 10 people in the workshop, first come, first served.

Email or call Pauline to register. Once you have registered mail our treasurer, Pieri, your check made out to MHBS to confirm the reservation ($55 for workshop AND azalea). Send to: Pieri Hayes 550 Columbia St. Ext, Cohoes NY 12047.
