Deciduous trees with Glenn Jensen & John Jackson.
This month we have an opportunity to learn from two long time San Diego Bonsai Club members John Jackson and Glenn Jensen. John and Glen will be sharing their knowledge of deciduous trees in a tag team style presentation. They will help us to understand the special needs of deciduous trees as we prepare for the rapid growth of spring. While the trees are bare is an excellent time to take a close look and make a plan for the future development of your trees. Once spring arrives, deciduous trees can and usually do grow very rapidly and can very quickly get out of hand. Many will back bud, profusely, leading to an overly bushy tree. Knowing how to properly manage the trees growth is vital to being able to achieve your desired design goals.
Glenn and John will lead a small (bring your own tree) clinic in the morning from 8:30 to 10:25 for 6 lucky people, 3 with the Glenn and 3 with John. This is an opportunity to get expert advice about your own tree’s progression from one of these experienced members. Working with these experienced members will help you know what your trees need at their specific stage of development and what to expect as the tree grows. There is still some space available for this clinic so if you are interested in attending this clinic, please contact Darryl Elmer and reserve your spot. Don’t miss this opportunity to work one on one with these experienced members.
