“Little Trees are the Bee’s Knees” – David Byron Metzgar
- Next Meeting: Wednesday, February 17, 2016 , Grafting pines workshop and advanced bending demo. This workshop will be preceded by a talk and demonstration on how grafting works. Following this, members can purchase a 3-year old Japanese black pine seedling which will be used as under stock for grafting Japanese white pine. At the end of the workshop you will have a Japanese black pine with Japanese white pine foliage. If time remains, a demo on advanced bending will be provided. This will be a fun meeting, and a good way to shake off the winter blues!! Workshop and material fee: $20
- PBS Mentors can be found under the Membership page. Ask a more experienced member for help!
- The Planting Field Members are asked to come help at the planting field at Bob Grealish’s House. We have purchased starter material and planted it in the ground with the goal of having great material in the future and along the way learning how to train bonsai from an early stage. Work days will be announced and your volunteer time will be recorded, so the more time you put in, the better your selection will be when we use the trees.
- Bonsai Supplies: Remember to call Bob Dietz from Bonsai in the Burgh @ 724-348-4771 for all of your bonsai supplies, and he can bring them to a meeting for you or you can visit him in South Park.
