Beginner's Bonsai Class a success!
During the March meeting, the Toowoomba Bonsai Group hosted 14 participants in their Beginner's Bonsai class for 2019. The day started with information around the history and notions of bonsai and very soon the participants were choosing then wiring their tree, root pruning and placing it into their chosen pot. The interest and success shown in this group event makes sure it wont be the last! Participants will bring their tree in for future meetings to check on their health and progress....(the tree, not the owner)
