Smiths Falls Horticultural Society Regular Monthly Meeting

October 17, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

October guest speaker is Owen Marsh speaking on “Creating Bonsai”.

Owen is the Vice President of the Ottawa Bonsai Society and has been practising Bonsai for 8 years. During this time he has grown his collection from a few tropical trees to a collection of over 100 hardy and tropical trees.

Bonsai is the mixture of art and horticulture to create the appearance of a mature tree in a pot.
Owen will give an overview of the common Bonsai styles and required techniques to create a Bonsai in our Canadian climate.

This month the additional activities will include … while you mingle and visit the yummies table …

  •  a Fun Flower Show for members with no rules — hence “fun” — and all attending, members and guests, eligible to vote.
  • a Members’ Photo Contest with the October theme being “An Autumn Tree” — again, all attending, members and guests, eligible to vote.
  • And, finally, our fun Opportunity Table where you will be able to choose from an array of plant-related items with the low cost of a donation of any size. Donations of items to the table are most welcome.

members free … guests $3 … annual membership $10 per person / $15 per family
