9th Heathrow Bonsai Show 2018
Heathrow Show started as a club level show, catering for local bonsai clubs. Over the past 9 years, it has grown into the U.K.'s largest and most popular show with around 35 bonsai clubs from around the U.K. taking part and displaying trees.
EBPC Trading & tree display for Maidstone B.S.
The EBPC has supported this show since we formed in 2016, and with over 200 pots and 28ft of trading space, we were sure to arrive early as setting up takes quite some time. Heathrow show has a large main room for the exhibition and tree sales, and another room for traders of pots and dry goods.
As always the EBPC pots proved extremely popular and some superb pieces were snapped up by customers old and new. Some great new pots were also collected from some of the potters, which will be available in the EBPC shop soon.
I was also display trees with Maidstone Bonsai Society. Below are a few of my trees in our display, including my Olive which took joint 1st place in the exhibitor's vote. (The other joint 1st went to another Maidstone club member, Dean, with his beautiful Kokonoe Pine that can be seen behind.)
Below are the final results. For more photos, please visit Swindon Bonsai Club's blog here.
