Bonsai South West 2012

Post  marcus watts on Mon May 21, 2012 3:24 pm

Here goes the start of a thread about this weekends show, please add other pictures too as I was quite busy.

An annual bonsai show held in Exmouth Pavillion, organised by the Exeter Society but the trees come from across the entire South West of England, and even further afield. The show is very well supported by some of the clubs and traders from the region and is becoming a really good social event on the calender.

Fantastic pine display from the Celtic knot crew

looking down one side of the hall

My red maple (acer)



Red Hawthorn - Paul Scarlet

Gordon Hunt Ceeramics - Pot & Accent pot maker extrordinair and a West country secret !!

Blackthorn from Celtic knot Wales

Juniper from Japan - (but welsh moss spores so it qualifies for the Welsh show Wink )

Cornish Elm

Local reporter covering the show - left a bit, up a bit...........

Each year there is a talent styling competition - This year I did a pre competition demo before the competitors got going

The material

After the news I had 30 minutes !!! for the demo a quick and drastic reduction occurred

And the little demo tree popped in a pot the next morning

Then the competition got going - here a a couple of the entrants getting into it

And the deserving winner - Oliver Palmer from Cornwall Very Happy Very Happy

A chinese Elm that was a late choice to bring along, and I've agreed to sell the pot to an Exeter member as he has been looking for ages for one like it !

A white pine that will probably get a little restyle soon ! Very Happy

Hopefully some more associations will add their pictures to show what the SW had to offer this weekend.


cheers everyone for a great Sunday
