2011 Taunton & Somerset Bonsai Show

During the weekend of 21st and 22nd May 2011, it was time once again to dust of a few Bonsai to show at the club weekend.

Our club hosts the show at the Willowbrook Garden Centre betwixt Taunton & Wellington. Sadly the weather was not kind; winds were extremely strong and it not only kept people away from the Garden-Centre, it kept them away from our show.

It took a lot of work to keep the club marquee firmly down on the ground. I hope next year, the weather will be kinder.

I have just included here on my site a few images of my own trees and accent plantings.

Anticipating a question regarding the log planting; it is a log pot made by the great John Pitt.

The Scots also is a John Pitt Pot (say that after a few), and the Procumbens (which is work in progress, is in a Japanese pot.

The snail (just for fun) is made from FIMO, a modelling clay heated in the home oven.

I’ve specifically only shown my own trees here; the rest of the show can be viewed on:
