Bonsai @ Greenmount This Weekend

Just a reminder that we are having our annual ‘come and have a go’ weekend at Greenmount this weekend. A small display of bonsai will be there along with a demo and hands on workshop for anyone who wants to try their hand at bonsai. We will also be prepping a few trees for Bonsai 30. We will also have a sales area for our members to sell or swap bonsai and related material.

The Koi Society will also have there amazing fish on display in there own Show as well, so a double attraction while you can also wander the beautiful walled garden and grounds of the Green Mount Campus.

All the info can be viewed below. Hope to see you there.

BE 2016 @ Botanic Gardens Belfast

The Bonsai Experience event ran by our club in partnership with funding from Belfast City Council took place on Saturday at Botanic Gardens Belfast. This is a pop up event appearing first thing on Saturday morning and gone by 6pm. As a club it’s a fun event to do, with us only needing to bring trees along and everything else already in place for our day ahead. We opened to the public at 10.30am  and had a decent amount of people through the doors in the first 2 hours. Our Children’s workshop ran during the day but we had a real surge of participants at the start and, with lots of hands assisting, we created some nice Larch starter bonsai for the kids. It was great to see them wiring and pruning away.

A big thank you to Belfast City Council for funding us again this year, however, the biggest thanks must go to our own members who did a sterling job of setting up, running the day and taking it all away again. I have no doubt that we’ll gain new members from this event.

I have added a gallery of the photos from the event below that capture the day. Perhaps not many shots of the bonsai themselves as a marquee isn’t the best place to capture good quality snaps of trees, but these will give you an idea of what a fun day we had.

With close to 1000 visitors, despite the football match and other local events, we were delighted with the days impact on bringing bonsai to the people. A great experience all round.

Bonsai Display @ Springhill Moneymore

It’s not often the NIBS gets to venture into the West  so to speak but on the 18th & 19th June we will have a small display of bonsai at the beautiful Springhill National Trust property in Moneymore.

If you live over that side of the Bann and feel starved of bonsai, why not come along. Trees will be on display as well as a rolling demonstration during both days. If you have a tree you want advice on, bring it along for us to see. There will even be some bonsai and related products for sale.

See a full run down of the event below.
