Planning for a June 2017 Show Proves Challenging


Kusamura Bonsai Club usually has its annual show in April when temps are cooler and trees are at their Spring finery. This year; however, the show is June 24/25. It just so happens that the temperatures in the unpredictable California weather pattern this year have gone over 100 degrees for several days. Trees take that hard in some cases and stop growing. I got home from work today to find soil temperatures over 90 degrees in the shade.I can only ponder what it was while they sat in the sun. So, obviously, pour on the water and cool those pots down and lessen the stress on the trees. Still there is foliage on trees I will show that are just suffering and wilting in the heat. On Wednesday this week I will need to bring the show trees indoors to keep the foliage it the temps remain so high.
