Diablo Bonsai Club 2010 program.

Sensei Kunitoshi Akabane is requesting all members, Basic and Intermediate to look in Garden Nurseries for appropriate material. The Club may not conduct field trips to Bonsai Nurseries in 2007. The objective is to direct the members to look at basic nursery stock, 4" starter trees, 1, 2 and 5 gallon stock as potential bonsai material. This is to help the members develop their ability to look for and select basic raw material for development potential.
