FoBBS Gold Medal Award, R.H.S. Chelsea 2014

As in previous years, the Federation of British Bonsai Societies’ stand at the R.H.S. Chelsea Flower Show drew much attention from the general public. The two-tier stand, some 36 feet in length, comprised a total of twenty shohin-size and larger bonsai together with a small selection of mamé and accent plants.

Again, the Federation was successful in winning a Gold Medal award. Thanks must go to Reg Bolton and his team responsible for the design and assembly of the stand together with those who offered up trees for the display. Thanks also to those who manned the stand, and who answered the innumerable question from the public.
