Succulent Bonsai-A Different Approach

Our speaker Keith Taylor began collecting C&S 1991 and creating unique containers to show off his specimens in 2010. He has developed a different style of staging by combining plant, pot, rocks and topdressing to create award winning compositions.

Keith will bring plants from his collection and talk about how to combine these elements create eye catching presentations. He will also demonstrate how to stage.
