Meeting Location: Adams Wildlife Sanctuary, 2315 Clear Lake Avenue, Springfield, IL 62703.
The April meeting will feature a program on bonsai landscapes by Dr. Folse. Our April meeting will feature the creation on bonsai landscapes. Bring trees to work on and a slab or shallow tray if you want to make a group planting. One advantage of group plantings is that young, small trees work well. You can collect these or find them at a local nursery or other source.
With the arrival of spring we will also have a discussion on how to select prebonsai plants from local nurseries and big box stores. This is a good time to pick up some trees and begin styling for our October show and sale. If anyone would like help selecting nursery stock Mike Sudholt has volunteered to meet at the Lowes store at 2560 N Dirksen Pkwy from 5:00 6:30 pm prior to the meeting if you would like help. The Walmart is next door and Menards is across the street for convenient tree shopping. Mike will only be there if anyone is interested. If you want to meet call or text Mike at 217.502.9501.
