Gold at Chelsea Flower Show for Federation of British Bonsai Societies

A guard of honour for Fobbs Gold Medal winning stand!

For Bonsai Enthusiasts, one of the real highlights of the Chelsea Flower Show is seeing some of the finest bonsai in the UK, groomed and displayed to perfection.

Bonsai is an art, and nowhere is this more obvious than at Chelsea, where utterly convincing images of full-size forest trees are brought down to the scale of a few feet, and in some cases a few inches.

Once again, the Federation of British Bonsai Societies participated in this year’s R.H.S. Chelsea Flower Show and again, it proved highly successful, receiving another Gold Medal award.

Congratulations to all those who played a part in bringing the display together.
