Lotterywest sponspored the event. Admission is by a gold coin (A$1) donation to Lifelinehttp://www.lifeline.org.au/. About 2,000 people went thru the gate. Here are some of the trees to share.

Eddie: Thanks. It was very gratifying to see so many people having a great time at the show. All the hard works and preparations by so many people are worth it. We have so many people coming up to congratulate us and told us they greatly enjoy the display. Plenty of actions in the sales area as well.

Cheers,

CJ

CJ,

thank you very much. Just beautiful!! Really fell in love with the Stone Pine and Ficus.
Boggles the mind to see so many new [ to me ] trees that can be used for Bonsai.
Later.

I think the Melaleuca is my favorite of this batch. We don't see many of them over here, though I think some folks in S. Florida have used the species that is invading the Everglades.

I don't think we have this specific variety of Melaleuca and probably never will. I hope of my Australian friends that went to China were able to get back and participate.

We managed to raise A$3325.20 for charity - Lifeline. The official traffic count was 1,625, 708 on Saturday and 927 on Sunday. It looked equally crowded to me on both days though. Could we have missed some people ?

Wow. I have long wondered how tea trees, e.g., would do as a bonsai subject. Now I know- sublimely beautiful!

"Forbidden Zone"... no idea what that is, but it's just the sort of name that makes me want to go there Twisted Evil
Those are really beautiful.

Well in the old BCI specie guide, the Leptospermum Scoparium or New Zealand Tea tree is classified as "the ultimate forbidden bonsai". Their words not mind. Under the new site, they have listed the Leptospermum Laevigatum as the Australian Tea Tree. This is wrong. The Australian Tea Tree is a paperbark - Melaleuca Alternifolia. The story of how these common names come about is an interesting one. It all got to do with Captain Cook and his crew. These people after a long time at sea were so tea-deprived that they brewed tea using the leave of Melaleuca Alternifolia when they landed in Australia. When they landed in New Zealand they brewed tea using the Leptospermum Scoparium. This is as far as I know and I will be very happy if someone can show me that it is otherwise.

Cheers,

CJ

Forbidden... That word has an immediate and inexorable effect on my psyche. I shall have to locate a specimen or two and try my hand, -clumsy and neophyte as it is. I wonder if any of those micro-leaved Myrtaceae would survive well if brought indoors through my climate's nasty winters. I surely wouldn't want to leave them outside.

My experiences are confined to the weather in Perth - hot summer of up to 42 C and mild winter of lowest 0 C. I keep my trees outdoor all the time.
