VIENNA – A two-day event for the West Virginia Bonsai Club-Ki No Kaze Bonsai Club began on Saturday. People could venture to Scots Landscaping in Vienna, where the club often holds meetings to see their personal bonsai, learn about bonsai care, and pot their own in a $ 50 workshop that has everything necessary and Contained personalized care instructions from club members, combining over 100 years of knowledge and expertise.

According to club president and founding member Jim Lindley, the art of bonsai has been around for well over a thousand years.

“Bonsai are not genetically small plants, in fact any tree species can be used to grow one.”

The club has members from all over the area, including Ohio, and Lindley says they keep adding new members.

“You don’t need to be experienced to take part, we’re happy to help you learn all about the art of bonsai making.” he said.

At club meetings, members often tend their trees together or discuss how to do it.

Bonsai trees need other maintenance year round, like styling, wiring, and root priming, according to club secretary Edie Lindley.

“We want to encourage people to join the club and create / maintain their own bonsai.” said Edie Lindley.
