December 8 Bonsai Workshop
We trust our on-staff bonsai expert Steve T to tell us what’s right for bonsai, and he’s making some discouraging faces regarding this upcoming class. The weather is predicted to be in the 30s, with lows in the 20s, and he says that repotting in that kind of weather is not good for the little trees. So for the good of the trees, this workshop will be canceled.
We will be having a class on indoor bonsai on January 11, and our Division St. store is also hosting a couple of bonsai classes in January. See our January Events Page for details. None of these are hands-on workshops, though, due to the time of year. Hopefully, we will have at least one hands-on repotting workshop in the spring.
Sorry about the disappointment! Turns out the pleasant weather couldn’t last.
