Welcome to the World of Bonsai!

Saturday, 9:30 am to 11:30 am
Free for members of Mounts and West Palm Beach Bonsai,

Free with Garden admission for nonmembers
Registration is required; presentation size is limited to 75 adults

May 11 is World Bonsai Day. Celebrate by attending this fantastic presentation where participants will walk away not only with a wealth of knowledge about bonsai, but also with a lot of inspiration. Questions to be answered include:
  • Is a bonsai a particular species of tree? Can any small tree become a bonsai?
  • How did bonsai come about, and what do they signify?
  • How do you style a bonsai?
  • What's special about bonsai pots?
  • What's the best way to kill a bonsai?

Along with a stunning photo presentation, there will be a live demonstration of how to transform a nursery tree into a beginning bonsai. Visitors will learn how to remove organic potting soil, selectively prune the roots and branches, and finally replant it in bonsai soil in a classic-style pot. At the end of the session, one lucky participant will leave with the demonstration.
