Heathrow Bonsai Show

On Sunday 22nd October we had a true first for Harlington Sports Centre! The Heathrow Bonsai Show chose us to host their 8th show.

Originating in Japan, Bonsai is the art of growing ornamental, artificially dwarfed varieties of trees and shrubs in pots.

For 6 hours the centre was a buzz of activity with people showing off their miniature trees and plants. There was something for everyone with a club bonsai display, Bonsai traders, Advice clinics and demonstrations. The only thing that wasn’t miniature was the refreshments.

John Hanby, owner of one of the largest bonsai nurseries in UK and probably one of the largest bonsai schools in Europe, was on hand to demonstrate best practice and Bonsai techniques. The day flew by and was a great success.
