Joe Dupont's Juniper / Black Pine Dig

Many thanks go out to Joe for his hospitality at his house for our club juniper dig. Joe and Steve planted seedlings 10 years ago.Over the years these trees matured into Demo trees and workshop candidates.It was time to make room and members of San Pu Kai were invited to help dig up the remaining trees and everyone got one or more trees to take home...FOR FREE!!!! GO SAN PU KAI !! We were all thankful for the club sponsored BBQ and the treats that Uta, Chris and Cary brought. Everyone had a great time.


Mother?s Day Weekend on May 9th & 10th San Pu Kai will be holding their Annual Bonsai Show for the public. This is a great opportunity to spend a great weekend with friends and family while viewing some truly beautiful Bonsai Trees. The members of San Pu Kai have each contributed by styling and potting young Junipers which will be available for purchase. In addition there will be assorted Bonsai related material available as well, tools, pots, books etc. We look forward to seeing you there.
