The Bonsai Society at Royal Botanical Gardens (often styled “Bonsai@RBG) was founded in 2009 to serve bonsai enthusiasts in the western GTA. Our membership consists of people with experience ranging from just a few months to over forty years. As a result, our meetings cover topics ranging from basic (selecting material, repotting, basic horticulture) to advanced (grafting, heavy branch bending, deadwood creation).
In addition to our regular meetings and workshops, Bonsai@RBG typically has a number of special events each year, such as:
- Guest bonsai professionals
- Annual exhibitions
- Nursery crawls to select material
- Backyard workshops
We believe that bonsai is best learned in a one-to-one setting with people who have experience working in your climate. Come out to a meeting to see what we are all about!
