April 2016 Meeting -Tree of the Month Competition

As the theme for this month was Trees in Flower  Fuji Cherries – Kojo-no-mai  were well represented with three trees entered in the Advanced Class. Evidently the name means ‘Flight of the Butterflies’ and what an attractive way to start the spring bonsai season looking out of ones window at a tree like this. They are by their nature a very bushy shrub and need a fair bit of  work to define a trunk and develop a tree like silhouette.
