Join us Monday for our August Society Meeting. Past president Cat Nelson will be speaking about accent plants - with a specific focus on preparing them and other accessories for the August Exhibition. We'll also dedicate time during the meeting to preparing your own trees and displays - so please bring items you are planning to show! Reminder, only 2 weeks until the 40th Mid-America Bonsai Exhibition. More information on our page dedicated to the August Exhibition.
We're only three weeks away from the 40th Annual Mid-America Bonsai Exhibition, held as always at the Chicago Botanic Garden!
Join us August 18-20 for one of the largest Bonsai Exhibitions in the United States. Trees from around the country will be on display, along with vendors, workshops and demonstrations, all centered around the Chicago Botanic Garden's world-class Bonsai collection. Guest Master Kathy Shaner will be presiding over the judging of the trees.
Due to the migration of Boxwood Blight into the areas of Lake and Cook Counties, Illinois, the Chicago Botanic Garden has instituted a policy disallowing all Buxus plant materials brought in by visitors, vendors and others to the Garden, to protect the Garden's collections. This has immediate impact to the Society, Visiting Guest Artists, and attendees registering trees for our twice-yearly exhibitions. Read more about Boxwood Blight at our dedicated page.
