Growing a bonsai requires passion and patience

More than 100 bonsai plants are on exhibition. Using wires, the stems and roots of any potted plant may be tied up to limit growth and induce the intricate and  distorted shapes which is characteristic of a bonsai.

Fun activities for the kids at the Show, while parents are admiring the exhibits
