2017 Bonsai Northwest Melbourne Show - 11&12 November 2017

Postby DavidN » October 16th, 2017, 3:21 pm

Hi all
We had a fantastic show last year and I'm sure the hard work the team has put in again this year will really impress all visitors again.
Please pass on to everyone who might be interested.
Thanks
David

We will also have a fantastic sales area as always.

Shibui will be coming down with a ute full of trees as well as Mark Ludlow from The Master's Apprentice Bonsai School bringing down a truck load. Not to mention all the other members who always have quality tree for sales.
A huge added bonus this year is that we have a bonsai collection from a retiring bonsai owner of 50+ trees being put up for sale and I hear they are priced to sell!!

Great opportunity to pick up quality trees at good prices.

Super excited for this one!!! The sales area last year over the two days looked like it put through more stock than I could even imagine. Looking forward to picking up some more goodies this year!!

This tree was one of my favourites from last year. An old trident that I believe was imported from Japan a long time ago? Sorry if the photos bad, was on my phone.

Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend (11 & 12 November) at the Footscray Community Arts Centre :tu:

Cheers,
Pearcy.

We had a fantastic exhibition and I hope all the visitors enjoyed the weekend.

Very much looking forward to the 2018 convention in Melbourne where some of these trees will be on display in their winter silhouettes.

Here are a few photos of the trees on display. The club website will be updated shortly with all other photos from the weekend.

Thanks to those that came along and visited and huge thanks to the volunteers that helped put on this event.

Ditto what Pearcy said, it was a great exhibition, the quality of trees was amazing and inspiring. I particularly liked the radiata pine (shown in David's photos above, third from the top - exceptional ramification) and there was a JBP of similar size close to it (#2?) which was also great IMO...
Which reminds me... which tree won Most Popular?? I was so engrossed in the exhibition and sales area that I completely forgot to fill my card in, found it still in my back pocket when I got home... :palm: :shake:

Hi Ryceman3
Most popular tree was a very close race this year with the Seiju Elm (pictured about halfway done) winning. It's a spectacular tree with fantastic ramification ad tiny leaves.

Thanks for your positive feedback and glad you enjoyed the exhibition.
