MK Bonsai Show 2019

A collaborative display of the finest Bonsai trees in the region.

Saturday 13th July 2019
Milton Keynes Central Library, 555 Silbury Blvd, Milton Keynes
10:00 – 15:30

On the 13th July 2019, Milton Keynes Bonsai Society are proud to present the city’s second
Annual Bonsai Show! Featuring the best trees from Milton Keynes very own Bonsai club and supported by some of
the finest trees from clubs in the surrounding regions, it promises to be the highlight of MK’s
burgeoning Bonsai scene!

Building on last years hugely successful show, we will once again be located at Milton Keynes
Central Library, right in the centre of town on Silbury Blvd. a short hop over the road from
Centre MK and the Intu shopping centre. The show will run from 10:00 to 15:30.

From Bonsai enthusiasts to absolute beginners, there will be something for everyone, and if
you have never had the chance to see Bonsai up close before you really must come along –
there is nothing like witnessing a quality Bonsai for the first time and it can be quite
breathtaking!

The Bonsai scene in the UK (and all over Europe!) is booming as more and more people
discover this beautiful Japanese art form. As it spread outside of Japan each country has
brought local trees into the art and there are now amazing examples of Oak, Hawthorn, Elm
and countless other varieties as well as the more ‘traditional’ Japanese Pines, Junipers and
Acers. Indeed, many people don’t realize that Bonsai aren’t a special variety of tree or a
species in themselves, they are in fact ANY tree that has been cultivated and kept in a
container in a miniaturized form. ‘Bonsai’ is literally the Japanese word for a ‘tree in a pot’!
New for this year, we will have a demonstration area where club members will show you
some of the techniques involved on their own trees as they work on them.

In addition, the Northants and Milton Keynes branch of the British Cactus and Succulents
Society will be providing us with an impressive display and an insight into their horticulture
practice.

So, come along to see the region’s best trees on display in public for one day only.
If you find that you’ve been inspired, our new sales area will have a selection of trees and
supplies to choose from and all the advice you need to get started. Be warned though …
… Bonsai is highly addictive!
