MBS "Meet the Public" display, June 2011

Post  bonsai monkey on Mon Jul 11, 2011 8:46 pm

Blustery Bearsted brought out our Best!!
Sorry for the late post but I hope that you agree that it was worth the wait!!





Again we were lucky with the weather, although it was a wee bit breezy at the beginning of the day, and this brought out the crowds to appreciate
our wonderful trees. This year, for the first time ever, we were let lose on a member of the public’s tree thanks mainly to Les’s Scouse charm!!


Les hard at work!



I managed to skive long enough to do some pruning



The Clubs larger trees were this time around complimented with a super selection of Shohin* and Accents. Our standard is really on the up and well done to all those members that took the troble to bring trees along. They say that a picture can paint a thousand words so enough drivel from me, here’s the trees……………



Keiths Root over Rock Trident Maple




Les's Larch




Stunning Shohin Elm Raft



A selection of Le's Shohin



Japanese Maple



Korean Hornbeam



Shohin Cork Barked Elm




One of Mick's super Accents



Ook, Ook,
Simon
(*Fiona, I'm working on some of these for Willowbog)

hi, very nice show of trees

I also find displays where the general public come along always far better when there is some practical demonstration and discussion going on. We tend to run a few styling demos alongside the usual 'trees on tables' at all our open shows (Pine Lodge, Eden Project, National Trust Trellisick Gargens etc). While the public will look at display trees for a few minutes they will stay watching a demo, ask a lot more questions etc and often come back to see how the trees turn out.
