Bonsai growing is part of an International Federation.  The summer of 2009 saw the Sussex Bonsai Group of Wivelsfield Green host the national exhibition at Hove Town Hall.  Crawley was honoured to be invited to take part along with other chosen clubs.

The Sussex Group organised and put on a magnificent two-day event, but then, they do have a member who has won seven gold medals at Chelsea!  Bonsai is an art, a craft that needs the right setting for display.  Our club did Crawley proud with an excellent presentation showing a variety of trees grown by many of our members.

Miniature trees are so beautiful, enhanced by the right setting and background. We have our own base material and stands in various heights but whereas the winning club had their own background, we had to rely on a given position which was fortunately against the town hall wooden panelling.  Even so, our members had some creditable trees worthy of showing and we were highly commended.

If you wish to join our happy band of bonsai growers you will be most welcome. We have the experts to help beginners to grow healthy and artistic miniature trees.  Do come along.  For more information see the Groups tab above.
