Bonsai at Ayr Flower Show 2016

The annual Ayr flower show in the birthplace of our national poet Robert Burns takes place this weekend and as usual there are lots of bonsai to see. Watston Bonsai and Ayrshire Bonsai Club created 3 large displays all of which received gold medals. The partitioned display by Ayrshire Bonsai Club also won the best in show award. There is also a small open competition event where anyone can enter a tree and have it judged.

Here are some general views of the displays

The Ayrshire clubs’ partitioned display. I covered this display in detail in an earlier post, which can be found here, when it was presented at the Gardening Scotland Show earlier this year.
