Styling Competition October 2014

We randomly divided those members present into teams of two or three and give each team a shrub of nursery stock. In the course of the evening the team have to turn it into a bonsai. At the end of the evening each member voted for what they thought was the winning tree. (Members do not vote for the tree that they worked on.)

The trees were Garden Centre purchased: 1 Juniperous communis ´Green Carpet´ and 3 Juniperours rigida conferta ´Schlager´.
