Filming a silver birch wood recently a passer by enquired why, as the trees were devoid of foliage and looked rather ugly. The reply given was that some of the footage would be used to support a discussion on a pending bonsai article. As the conversation developed, he remarked that he had always been interested in bonsai and would like to know more about the art, now he had retired. “Are there any bonsai clubs or associations where one can join?” Unfortunately there are no bonsai clubs in this area that I am aware of was the reply. “That is a pity, bonsai are sold locally in garden centres and stores so there must be some interest.” Yes you are probably correct in your assumption, but it really is up to the individual whether he or she wants to be part of a club or stay as a solo enthusiast.
