This upcoming Monday, May 2nd, at 7:00PM we will meet at the Regenstein Center at the Chicago Botanic Garden for our May society meeting.
We have a great program planned, including a Bonsai 101 on Pruning and Pinching, and then a Demonstration by Chris Baker, Curator of the Bonsai Collection at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Chris will be performing work on a Pine.
Additionally, we will have tables in the back for members to sell any Bonsai-related items.
April 4th is fast approaching. We hope to see you at 7PM at the Chicago Botanic Garden for our annual repotting meeting. Now that trees are starting to wake from dormancy, bring trees ready to be repotted (no tropical trees yet). The Society provides some unsifted Turface, as well as some pots, but bring your trees, tools, and any other materials you might need to start off the Spring repotting season!
Do you have questions about advanced techniques, such as air-layering, root work, and propagation techniques? Senior Society members will be there to help answer questions.
