Event Description

Early Spring Bonsai Show:
Winter Detail and Spring Buds

A show this early may seem unusual but it is a great time to see the detailed branches or new spring growth before it all gets hidden by leaves.

Come and share with us the joy of watching the trees as they wake up from their winter dormancy. Will they be showing delicate new spring growth or still just the elegant and detailed branching of the leafless winter? We won’t know until the day of the show, and its always worth the wait!

Located in the Camilla and Peter Dalglish Atrium.
