Gardening Scotland 2014 Results

At Gardening Scotland every year the Scottish Bonsai Association (SBA) have a competion for bonsai trees belonging to the members. This takes up a large part of the Floral Hall which this year was sponsored by New Hopetoun Gardens. We also show some of the Scottish National Bonsai Collection and other specimen trees on other stands. The members competition whilst not "serious" lets the public and other members of the SBA see and admire many of our varied trees.

The results of the competition and photos of the winning bonsai trees are shown below.
