In Person Meetings 2022! Welcome to the Art of Bonsai BC Bonsai Society

Nursery Stock Development Challenge 2023

From Winter 2022 to Fall 2023, the BC Bonsai Society is running a challenge for our members to apply their bonsai skills to any untouched nursery tree and transform it into the best bonsai they can.  At the end of the challenge our judges will provide you with valuable feedback on up to two trees per member using before and after photos that you submit.  We also hope to see your trees repeatedly at our in person meetings so we can discuss progress, share and learn together. Join the Nursery Stock Challenge and have a fun way to practice bonsai in 2023!

Have questions? Please see this information sheet for detailed participation requirements.
Here are the best from 2022:
