BSOB Bus Trip

Post  Billy M. Rhodes on Sat Jun 23, 2012 1:27 pm

Is this a great Bonsai Club or what. For 7/14/2012 the Bonsai Society of Brevard has rented a bus that will take us from Palm Bay, FL on a day trip to tour bonsai sites. The cost is $20 per person, with the club picking up the rest of the cost. Lunch is included. We have done this before, but I have not been in a while so I am really looking forward to it. (Miami Tropical Bonsai, H&F Imports and Dragon Tree Bonsai)

Well the trip was yesterday and I took a few photos. We had a bus load of about 40 people. Left about 7 AM got back about 8 PM. visited three Bonsai sites. Miami Tropical Bonsai in Goulds, FL an agricultural area south west of Miami, H&F Imports in Davie, FL just west of the Ft. Lauderdale Airport and Dragon Tree Bonsai in Palm City, FL, near Jupiter.

Miami Tropical Bonsai is a full service Bonsai nursery with plants, pots, soil, tools, fertilizer, etc.

H&F is a direct importer from China, a Bonsai container candy store. He also has plants and tools.

Dragon Tree is a small family operation with material that is different from a lot of the other bonsai nurseries.

Nice trees. Some of the stacked cinder stands look very unstable and an accident waiting to happen.

I also use cinder block but stacked flat, not on end. It does look unstable, but easily taken down and moved. If I know we have a hurricane on the way, I take mine down and put everything on the ground.
