Re: Wauchope Bonsai - Sept monthly meeting

Postby SteveW » August 29th, 2013, 8:46 pm

The Wauchope bonsai group's next meeting is on Saturday 14 September commencing at 10 am and going until around 2 pm. The group meets in the Rotary Hall, Oxley Lane, Wauchope.

This month's meeting will feature a presentation regarding the preparation of trees for showing and their display at the show. This is because our annual show is on soon, on the third weekend of October at Port Panthers. Pictures from last year's show are below.

The meeting will commence with a discussion of the display trees, followed by the presentation, then workshop time for members to work on their own trees. In tandem with the workshop period is a 1 hour session for beginners to learn the basics of bonsai care and creation. There will also be lots of discussion of the trees liberated from the cow paddock at this month’s dig. Collected trees are an excellent way to get an advanced bonsai quickly.

Visitors are welcome to our meetings. The group is an excellent way to learn how to create your own bonsai, or to care for the one(s) you already have.

Jobs to do this month are:
• The best time for repotting deciduous trees is past, especially if they are already leafing up.
• As trees start to grow, nip the new growth back to one or two pairs of buds. This will keep the tree compact.
• Start fertilising your trees now. Soluble fertilisers should be used regularly (fortnightly). Slow release fertiliser can also be used.
• Clean moss off the trunks of your trees and keep weeding.

Not far off now Steve.

I'd better start sharpening the grafting knives and pack some bags.
Look forward to meeting members up there.

We're looking forward to it. Some of the Hastings club members are coming and one of the workshop participants is from Coffs. No pressure.

Its raining, so we will have green grass too! (Been dry, by our standards)

Wauchope Bonsai - monthly meeting 12 May 2018

Postby SteveW » May 3rd, 2018, 5:26 pm

This month's presentation is on small bonsai.
The display trees will be shohin sized trees.
The group meets in the Rotary Hall, Oxley Lane, Wauchope from 10 am and until around 2 pm on the second Saturday of each month. Meetings include a presentation, display of bonsai, and working on your own trees.

From http://www.bonsaitreegardener.net/intro ... sification. This is the minature size categories.
Kenshitsubo – These are the smallest possible variety of bonsai tree. Little more than artfully-designed seedlings, they’re also known as poppy seed sized trees. Rarely are they ever more than one to three inches in height. They can be lifted with two fingers easily.

Shito – These are the smallest common size of bonsai tree. Known as fingertip size, they grow generally between two and four inches in height. Often they can be found in pots no larger than a thimble, leading to their other name, the thimble bonsai.

Shohin – These bonsai trees are in a category that overlaps others, leading to the disuse of the name. They grow between two and six inches in height. They’re also known as the palm bonsai, because of how they easily fit in a palm. Shohin and Shito are differentiated from other small bonsai trees by the techniques used to create them.

Mame – These bonsai trees grow between four and eight inches in height. They are the smallest of the bonsai trees known as one handed trees, because it takes a single hand to move them. Often they have larger pots than Shohin bonsai trees.

Komono – Also known as the generic small bonsai tree, the Komono bonsai grows on average between six and ten inches. They are almost the largest tree that can be moved with one hand.
