February 19th 2017. Great meeting! Thank you all for coming! We discussed the upcoming BSOP show to be held at the Japanese Gardens again this year. We also talked about Rocky's concrete work, which has some new processes. Discussion of the February Weyerhaueser sale came up - wow, the plugs are very nice this year! The list at the door was not the same as the one published online, as the list changes due to availability.
Next meeting: March 19th, 2017
Some members have voiced interest in building or maintaining their forests. Weather permitting, our general whack and chat will have bonsai forest theme for February and March, along with our other whack and chat, and informational bonsai meeting content.
For those purchasing Weyerhaueser seedlings and trees in gallon to 2 gallon pots, your bare root seedlings will need to have root protection with a light soil medium. If you are planning on using your purchases for a bonsai or forest, our meeting is only 8 days away form the sale. Bring your own supplies.
