To all those bonsai folks in the Richmond, Va. area, my long-time bonsai friends have been tapped for a month-long bonsai exhibit at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. The exhibit will run from the last day of Jan. through Feb. It's worth a trip over there to see. Show will include tropicals as well as temperate zone species.


Some of their trees this fall. First photo --scots pine, Bald Cypress, juniper. Second photo--collected hackberry, third-will leafed ficus

This is so great to hear, but also disappointing I heard about it here before I heard about it from the club. I'll be there for sure.

It's breaking news ;-) I was down at Gardens Unlimited this weekend and heard about it.

One thing--the link to Gardens Unlimited on the event page goes to a FB page for an unrelated landscaping business on the west coast. Working now to get that link fixed.

Just got the program for the event. Here's a glimpse of some of the trees (which also includes some LARGE tropicals). BTW, I wrote the forward for the program...Go see this if you have time in Feb. -- what else do you have to do in that bleak month? 😁
