Bonsai Presentation Coming Up!

     Last summer, I was scheduled to give a presentation on bonsai at the Kosciusko Community Fair. Then the local Master Gardeners (who invited me in the first place) asked if I would postpone my program until October, so it could be part of their Fall Harvest Series. I agreed.

OOPS! Correction to my last post.

     In my last post I stated that the bonsai at Kouka-En nursery are watered four times a day in the growing season. Shortly after publishing the post, I realized that sounded excessive. I found Paul Stokes' video of this demonstration, at the ofBonsai website, and watched the pertinent segment. Somehow, I had misheard Bjorn: the trees are checked four times a day, but watered only as necessary. I have corrected that point in my last post, with a little additional information included.

I apologize sincerely to anyone who was misled by my mistake.
