What Can I Learn At A Bonsai Workshop?

Richard Reah learned his bonsai craft in the company of Louis Hawksby known to some as "Yorkshire's Mr Bonsai". Louis started on the bonsai road at the age of about seven and on retirement passed on his business to Richard knowing that he was leaving it in capable hands. Nevertheless Richard has had to learn his craft over a number of years and benefitted from many hours of bonsai tuition. Richard regularly visits Flower Shows in England and Scotland. To get some idea of how well Richard's displays are received at the shows then download the show results from here - Flower Show Results

At our Bonsai Workshops you will learn about different types of trees, the most suitable types of tree for bonsai and styles of bonsai trees. The bonsai pots, potting medium, how to water and where to keep your bonsai will be discussed. Repotting bonsai trees will take place at the appropriate time of year.

The tantalising part of the bonsai workshop experience though is styling and creating one's own bonsai, restyling where required, wiring one's tree to the desired shape and learning when and how to trim. At the end of the day you will leave the workshop with the confidence and knowledge of how to treat your bonsai, keeping it healthy throughout the year.
