Jun 1 – Jun 2 all-day

The Buffalo Bonsai Society and the Buffalo Botanical Gardens proudly present the Bonsai Show June 1 and 2 from 10:00am-4:30pm.  Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with members of the Bonsai Society as they display amazing bonsai specimens from their personal collections.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to purchase sculpted bonsai trees and plants, starter plants, accent plants and pots, as well as a raffle tickets for a chance to win bonsai baskets and merchandise.

Bonsai is a living art form which enables the hobbyist to transform conventional trees into a harmonious miniature representation of a mature tree in a small container. Since it involves a growing tree, the design is forever changing and evolving. Some of the techniques used to achieve this miniaturization and styling involve the pruning of roots and branches, defoliation of leaves and wiring the tree and its branches.
