Our 2012 Bonsai Show


Visitors enjoying our annual show.

Our show was again held at the Botanical Gardens on May 19th & 20th. The Botanical Gardens provide a beautiful back drop for our Western New York show and a natural compliment to our love of trees.

There was a demo each day conducted by Mike Coppola & Paul Pirson. In addition, a sales area provided the opportunity to purchase bonsai, starter material, pots, stands, tools, soil and more. We also raffled off a beautiful bonsai.
