Florence to branch out with bonsai evening

July 13, 2012 by  

On Tuesday, July 17, ‘Bonsai Trees’ will be held at the Florence Branch Library Meeting Room, located at 7425 U.S. 42 in Florence, Kentucky. This event begins at 7:00 pm.

This event is presented by the Boone County Public Library and will offer information about the artistic Japanese-style trees. The guest speaker, Bonsai expert Dave Radinski, will be on hand to share all types of information about these miniature ficus trees. Radinski is a member in good standing of the Bonsai Society of Greater Cincinnati.

During the seminar, guests will view a demonstration on how to care for and develop a young bonsai. They will also receive tips on how to fertilize and prune them, as well as what to watch for as they develop into mature trees. Mature specimens will also be available for viewing.

One fortunate audience member will receive a ficus tree to take home with them at the end of the evening, so they will be able to put what they have learned into practice. There are 25 seats available at this course and the audience can register online at the Florence Library’s website. Bonsai trees have long fascinated people with their delicate structure and small size, making them an excellent hobby for the garden enthusiast.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to promote this event to the public and members of the Florence and Boone Country Library system. Admission to the evening is free and everyone is welcome. For more information, visit the Florence Branch Library website or call them at 859-342-2665.
