The 2020 Canberra Bonsai Society Annual Show will be held 10-11 October at Canberra High School, Bindubi Street, Macquarie.

The display will feature high quality bonsai from the collections of CBS members, including some created by local artists currently represented in the National Bonsai and Penjing Collection of Australia at the National Arboretum, Canberra (NAC). It will include both traditional exotic plant species and Australian species.

This year we are expecting that there will be a number of bonsai on display that are from new members, some very old trees and there are also expected to be some large group plantings.

Demonstration sessions at 11am daily, will covering aspects of designing and maintaining bonsai.

Bonsai Basics sessions will be held at 2pm daily. These sessions are designed for novice bonsai growers or those thinking of taking up the art, and provide an introduction to fundamental bonsai techniques such as wiring, repotting and root pruning, styling and bonsai maintenance.

Plant sales this year will include starter plants, advanced stock trees and styled bonsai. This is a great opportunity to buy bonsai and stock plants of a quality not often available in Canberra.

Australian made and imported Japanese and Chinese bonsai pots, tools and wire will be available for purchase.
Visitors can vote for their favourite bonsai.

A raffle, with prizes of a bonsai, a bonsai pot and a bonsai book, will be held over the weekend as well as a lucky door prize, also of a bonsai.
