Hi Ayrshire Group Members.

Hope you are all enjoying better weather and actually seeing your trees rather than white blobs and snow drifts on benches and in gardens . This Sunday 11th March is our next scheduled meeting. No particular theme tree as this is our workshop with Rob Atkinson. If you are one of the eight members attending the workshop then you will have exclusive time with Rob from 9am till 2pm'sh. Others are basically exspected to attend (almost as normal) so as not to impinge on workshop time and activities. The afternoon will involve a critique by rob on trees presented. Please  bear in mind guidance issued by Jeff to all in his circulation of 26th February. This should prove to be be a very worthwhile and informative meeting so please give it your interest and attendance.

This months Programme - March 2018 for Forth Valley Bonsai

A well attended meeting last night 6th. Feb. with a little early repotting done.

Our Convener enlightened us on a few points from the last SBA meeting, i.e. the Tokonoma displays at the National Exhibition and the Corin Tomlinson talk/demo in the Smith Art Gallery on 28th. July, I recommend this to all members.

Times for Japan Week are 1pm - 5pm 20th,21st & 22nd. February.

We still have a few places left for our Fankerton workshop on 24th & 25th March so it is advisable to get your name in ASAP.

Our next meeting will be a more serious re-potting night and as usual I would like to see as many trees there as possible.

At last we should get our trees out of the freezer and start a series of practical meetings. This month's key activity is re-potting, but you may prefer spring pruning or wiring of whatever tree you choose to bring. Bring a robust container to decant the club potting mixture for your needs, and there will also be club wire available for use on the evening.

A further opportunity for potting (as well as other bonsai activities) in a group environment is the Blether with the Edinburgh group at the Currie scout hut on Sunday, March 4th from 11-4.30 - see website for directions. All welcome.
