BONSAI ON DISPLAY IN UPSTATE NEW YORK

Post  William N. Valavanis on Fri Mar 18, 2011 3:55 am

Today GardenScape 2011, Rochester's Flower and Garden Show opened in Rochester, New York. Both the Bonsai Society of New York and the International Bonsai Arboretum had displays next to each other in the dome for a greater impact of our small treasures. Both have had displays in all of the 20 GardenScapes.

The theme for this year's GardenScape is "Rock Your Garden". Bonsai fit in perfectly. We had root-over-rock, clinging-to-a-rock (vertical), clinging-to-a-rock (horizontal) and tray landscape styles represented. I even brought my unusual "hanging" bonsai which looks like a cliff.

The Bonsai Society of Upstate New York won:
Non Profit Award for best use of forced plants

International Bonsai Arboretum won:
Best small garden
Best single forced plant under the direction of the exhibitor
Best fragrant plant used in the garden
Best labeling
Silver award for best display of forced plants
Silver award for best containers used in a garden

Enjoy our preview to spring in Rochester, New York!

That's quite a display, Bill. Good job -- as usual. Some BIG bonsai there.
