Quantcast Bonsai Study Group

Bonsai Study Group

A bonsai study group provides a means for those interested to continue working and learning new things about a variety of species and techniques. This is a great opportunity to practice bonsai techniques.  It's also a great opportunity to form a better/stronger bonsai community in the Greater Louisville area.


What to bring

Sessions will focus on proper work for the season and for thedevelopment stage of each individual tree.  If you plan on repotting besure to bring soil, a variety of suitable pots to choose from, aluminumwire, and plenty of trees to work with.  If wiring is to be done bringplenty of wire, aluminum for deciduous trees and copper for conifers.

All study group sessions will meet at my home in Shepherdsville, KY. Please call or contact for directions. We will meet promptly at 10am and conclude at 5pm, with a break for lunch.

For those interested in attending please sign up in advance.  Space is limited, so please call ahead.  If you are unable to attend please release your spot so that others may attend.  Please be on time so that we may begin work at the posted time.  If you wish to arrive early there will be plenty of bonsai reading material and hot green tea to keep you company until time to begin.
