About Pietermaritzburg Bonsai

The Pietermaritzburg Bonsai Society has been an ongoing Bonsai club since the 70's. We meet on the second Saturday of each month at the University of KwaZulu-Natal Agricultural Department Potting shed. For more information or to have questions answered please visit out contact page and email one of friendly committee members. We work by our club motto "一緒に成長している, Growing together!"

Last months meeting was again well attended and a lot was achieved.


Thank you everyone who brought eats for the tea. Thank you ladies who helped set up the cups and eats. Someone left their plastic cake container. It has a green lid. Will bring it to the next meeting.


Thank you everyone who contributed to the Raffle table. It always amazes me to see the variety and quality of items brought.


Monthly Newsletter April 2014

It was our first “Start at 1pm” and it was most positively accepted. Most of us have family commitments on Saturday nights, and we eventually finished just after 4pm.

We welcomed Graham Dickenses, Francois and Josh .We look forward to having you become part of our Society.

Brian gave a talk on “Tenuki” style and it certainly opens possibilities on what to do with some of our difficult material. Thank you, Brian, your bonsai related topics are very educational for us all.

Monthly Newsletter February 2014




We welcomed Leo Combrink who has not been to a meeting for some time. It was great to see him and his material. Brian again gave a most interesting talk and demo on Budleas and the sealing of bark. It was found to be of value to most of us. Thank you, again Brian.

With Al leaving soon he sold some of his trees and bonsai equipment, most of it at bargain prices. Thank you Al, for enriching some of our collections.
