Trophy for best 'European Bonsai Pot / Tree combo'
We are thrilled and honoured to be supporting the Bonsai San 2018 exhibition in France this October. In addition to trading some of Europe's best pots, we are also contributing to the Tombola raffle, and presenting the trophy for 'Best European Pot / Tree Combo'.
The trophy is now finished and these great pictures from designer Nino in Croatia show the trophy off in all its glory. Nino does a lot of design work for Harry at Bonsai4Me.com and for the EBPC and as always, has risen to the challenge and smashed all expectations!
EBSS (Bonsai San) has grown to become a leading European bonsai show, and one not to be missed. The friendly, open atmosphere, combined with a high level of trees and traders makes this a truly wonderful show! We wish the best of luck to, and thank everyone entering trees into the exhibition, and allowing the public the opportunity to see such great trees.
A huge thank you to Nino and Harry, and also to Fred & Stephanie for organising and hosting European Bonsai San Show! You do a phenomenal job!
We look forward to seeing you all there!

The EBPC are delighted to support EBSS in Saulieu, France
If you have not yet been to Bonsai San, you may well have heard about the superb level of the quality of the trees on display. You have probably been told about the incredible friendly atmosphere, and the great open plan layout. If you haven't yet been to Bonsai San, then perhaps this year you should?!

Auction Raku pot for Macmillan Cancer Support
This weekend another successful bonsai weekend workshop was hosted by a friend & club member, Les & family - where over £1000 has been raised so far for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The EBPC is proud to donate the proceeds of this auction to the current total raised, so if you would like to bid, the auction can be found here.
The auction ends Thursday 6th September, 2018.
The pot is a Raku fired piece, made by one of Europe's leading bonsai potters, Andrew Pearson of Stone Monkey Ceramics. It has a wonderful crackle glaze in teal, and bears the EBPC stamp in addition to the Stone Monkey Ceramics stamp, and makes a wonderful addition to any pot collection. Please note Raku fired pots are not frost proof, yet with a little care are very useable bonsai pots. A care sheet will also be provided to the winner.
The bonsai workshop was busy again, and some great trees were worked on over the two days. A variety of games and raffles were also arranged, with many local businesses around Ashford kindly donating raffle prizes. In addition to raising money for a great cause, a fun weekend was had by all.
