Welcome to the Taunton & Somerset Bonsai Club.
We are a very friendly bunch of people with one major interest in common, an enthusiastic love of Bonsai. Whether you are a beginner setting out along the pathway that is Bonsai or already have some years of cultivating your trees behind you do get in touch, or just simply come along to a meeting and see what goes on.

face to face meetings are cancelled for the present.
Members will be informed directly of any Club decisions as soon as we have any further news.
Our meetings in pre Covid-19 days were held at
The Bishop Henderson Primacy School in Taunton
Now we get together and share our enthusiasm for our trees via the magic of Zoom
We can still ask the ‘old hands’ of the Club for advice and suggestions about our trees, show each other what our favourite tree that month might be and keep the art of Bonsai alive in Somerset.
