Capel manor bonsai show 2015

Andys shohin bonsai

It all starts early in the morning with the rest of the back drops going up.

By 10:00 it’s all up and judging takes place while we have a coffee. Then it’s back into the room to see if we agree with the judges. Well done to the worthy winners the beech (purple) that was best tree in show was an air layer.

Grandad Geoff on guard!

Here is the best display.

This was my favourite display by John A.

These are the other exhibits.

This was my 3 point display.

Next up will be club display’s

Judge For Yourself….

One of the best blog articles I’ve read in ages HERE from Eric Schrader looking back on the Artisan’s Cup and the Judging system that was used for the Awards.

I can think of few things harder than Judging bonsai and the pressure at this first Artisan’s Cup must have been immense. This post from Eric really got my interest, I’ll leave you to judge for yourself.
