North East Lincs Bonsai Society
Join Our Club!
North East Lincolnshire Bonsai Society was formed in 1995 to promote the art of bonsai culture. Membership is open to absolutely anyone of any age, from anywhere within reasonable travelling distance of Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire.
We are a very friendly, welcoming and informal group and new members are always welcome, regardless of their level of knowledge or competence.
Meetings are held on the last Friday of every month, doors open at 7.00pm and meeting starts at 7.15pm sharp. (details) (excluding December, which is the second Friday ) and may include visits by guest speakers, demonstrations by bonsai professionals and general workshops. Our tuition workshops cater for all levels of experience, from the absolute novice to the more advanced, providing advice on maintenance and improvement of trees, as well as basic and more advanced techniques used in bonsai styling.
Club membership has its benefits… we operate a club shop, stocking bonsai sundries such as soils, tools and wire at reasonable costs and members get 10% discount at several local garden centres.
Our Bonsai Society regularly enjoys visits from bonsai professionals, such as John Hanby and Corin Tomlinson, as well as from bonsai potters, Steve Kitchman of ‘China Mist’ and Tony Remington. We hosted demonstrations and full days workshops with Ramon Hamers and Harry Harrington.
Next meeting August 28th 2022
North East Lincs Bonsai Society will be meeting again on Friday 28th August 2022. This month will be a tuition night and a tree selection opportunity for the bonsai tree display at Markham grange garden centre near Doncaster where we will have a club shohin display. For the tuition night bring along your trees for help with styling options and summer pruning or if help is not required then just bring along any trees to work on. If anyone has any shohin or mame size trees for the display bring them along pre-prepared in cleaned/oiled pots dressed with moss applied to the soil surface ready for showing and the club committee will select the best trees to show on the 25th September 2022.
