In case you missed it, the Wisconsin State Journal on Wednesday May 28 ran a very nice article about member Margaret E and the creation of fairy gardens. Margaret works at America’s Best Flowers in Cottage Grove and is giving three workshops on the creation of fairy gardens – one at America’s Best on June 21, and two at Olbrich on June 19 and July 12. While not strictly bonsai, the objects, plant selection, pruning, etc have much in common. For more information contact either Olbrich, or America’s Best at 222-2269.
At our September-2020 Zoom meeting, MaryE of the Badger Bonsai Society demonstrated her concept and development of an Elephant Bush (Jade Tree) grove style planting. You can view a PDF of MaryE’s presentation (link will open in a new window for viewing, or download a PDF depending on your system / browser settings). Here is the end result … what do you think?
