National Bonsai Collection News


Gardening Scotland 2018

As usual, the Scottish Bonsai Collection, will produce three displays in conjunction with the Scottish Bonsai Association.  The displays will run alongside the SBA members trees competition which attracts well over a hundred stunning entries each year. Gardening Scotland will run from 1st - 3rd June 2018 at Ingliston.


New Tree

For the first time in a long time (if ever!), the Collection has bought a new tree. We acquired this from Marie Vevers, a long time bonsai hobbyist and SBA member. We will put the photo on to the Collection news page in the very near future.


Tunnel Project 2017

We utilised a good percentage of our funds to purchase a polytunnel at Gardening Scotland in June. Having tried several sources for help and quotes, we eventually took the plunge and work started officially on 25/10/2017 to prepare the site. Our thanks again to Billy Carruthers for his generosity in allowing us to use more of his land.

Work and maintenance on the Collection Trees has been constrained over the years due to a lack of facilities to work on the trees in inclement weather, so the tunnel once erected should result in the quality of care and the appearance of the Collection to improve.


National Bonsai Collection Workdays

The National Bonsai Collection has arranged with Binny Plants, a series of workdays, on the following Sundays from 11:30am to 4:00pm

The work days from March to September will be on the LAST Sunday of each month.

The Open Day will be Sunday 26th August 2018, 1pm - 5pm.

The A.G.M. will be Sunday 21st October 2018.

The workdays will have two main activities:
1) Maintenance by the trustees of the National Collection Pavilion and its trees.
2) Opportunities for practical public demonstrations and hands-on workshops on styling and care of bonsai from starters to more mature trees.

These will be led by experienced trustees and carers and will be suitable for beginners and the more experienced alike. All of these will be open to the public free of charge although trees will be available for sale at low cost for participants. Light refreshments will be available. Billy has agreed to advertise these days on his Website
