Kirstenbosch Centenary Bonsai Collection and the Oyama Bonsai Easter Show 2013
Results of the public vote for the most liked trees at the Oyama Bonsai Kai Exhibition
The recent Oyama Bonsai Kai Easter show at the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens was a sensational exhibition of the club's top trees.
One of the unique features of the Oyama shows was the centerpiece display and this year we are celebrating Kirstenbosch’s centenary with the gardens by featuring the contribution to the cultural heritage that Kirstenbosch has made to bonsai in South Africa.
There were daily demonstrations, a young designers competition and workshops in the educational area as well as trees and other bonsai related goodies like pots and tools for sale.
Experienced growers, novices young and old were inspired by the beautiful trees and the friendly advice, knowledge and experience shared by club members.
