Well had a surprise visit from Piotr (twinsratbonsai) today and he came bearing gifts. We were just discussing the final few details for the club meeting on friday and he kindly brought some material he had dug up earlier.
I didnt have any pots but had to make do with one i cut and taped cracks together for the mean time.
After trying to keep as much as the original soil on the roots i added some gravel and some trusty kitty litter.
Check out my classy tape 🙂
Anyway thanks to piotr for the yamadori, And roll on our club meeting Friday night. Shaping up to be a great night.
So the time has come for our first club meeting on Friday the 20th of September at 8pm in the Blackrock Hurling Club,Church Rd, Blackrock, Cork. So now that we have the time and Venue confirmed, all we need are Bonsai Enthusiasts. You are more than welcome to attend and bring a friend who may have interest in Bonsai. The aim of this Club is to have fun with bonsai, learn in a group setting and most importantly make a bonsai community in Cork.
For our first meeting we will get to know one an other and if each person would like to bring one tree with them just for discussion. It doesn’t need to be a 100 year old White Pine (If it is please bring it 🙂 ) If its a well developed or just material bought from a garden centre, please bring one tree if you can. It is just to discuss bonsai and go home with some new ideas for your tree.
It should be a good night discussing everything bonsai and hopefully the beginning of our own Bonsai Club. If you need directions don’t hesitate to contact me or Piotr. All details are above on the form.
Just an update on whats happening with the new club for Munster. We have the date set for Friday the 20th of September. The meetings will take place in Cork as that is the area with the most people interested so far. This could alternate in the future. The venue is still to be confirmed, but will be confirmed in the next two weeks. I have a list of people interested so far and myself and Piotr will be in contact over the next two weeks. If you are interested and would like to join or have a friend or family member which you think would be interested don’t hesitate to contact us. Below is a flyer which Piotr made while on holidays, dedication or what 🙂 These will be seen around Cork and surrounding areas. Anyway all the details are below to get in contact or you can contact me also through this blog or email at firstname.lastname@example.org . About time we will have a community of entusiasts to meet, share ideas and knowledge, do workshops and just have a craic.
