The talk consists of me bringing along a selection of bonsai trees of different sizes and styles and discussing the origins and horticulture of the art of bonsai. The talk is about my love of this hobby and the enjoyment I get out of it and to encourage others to also try growing these fascinating miniature trees. I try to encourage audience participation to enhance the enjoyment of the talk. The talk is suitable for all ages and abilities and doesn't need any specialist equipment. Anyone can bring along their bonsai to the talk for guidance as I will be more than glad to help with any problems.
