I had the great pleasure of attending and working at the Wirral Bonsai Society Show over the August Bank Holiday weekend, 24-26th August 2019. A long-established club in the North-West England, it has to be said that as well as being one of the best club shows I have visited in terms of quality, the members were also extremely open and helpful to enquiries from the public.

Set within a large glasshouse within the Gordale Garden Centre, Neston on the Wirral, the Show had a large number of trees on display and this article records just a small number of my favourite images from the three days. The bonsai were shown without owner or tree details and so only basic species information is given in this article.

Privet Ent bonsai

Ligustrum ovalifolium/Privet bonsai. A very innovative tree, this bonsai had been styled as an 'Ent' by its owner and attracted a lot of interest from the public, particularly for the carved face in the deadwood. I was also particularly impressed by the accompanying display table and accent.

Itoigawa Chinese Juniper bonsai

Itoigawa Chinese Juniper bonsai that I awarded the prize for 'Best Tree And Pot Combination'.
