  1. Hi! I was just wondering when your next meeting was-am interested in joining-I know it’s the 3rd Monday of each month just wanted to confirm that I was counting right!!

  2. Hi. Will be rejoining after a few years absence. Have the trees to be displayed at the show already been chosen? I could send pictures of those I might submit if there’s room/need. Otherwise I’ll come have a look at what others are working on. Thanks.

  3. Hi I was at the bonsai exhibit today in Ottawa and picked up a leaflet about a beginner’s course being held in the end of October. Is this a lecture or a hands on course?
    Thank you,


    1. Hello, the course is theoretical (i.e. lecture format). It is a pre-requisite for members to participate in the workshop in the spring. Thank you for visiting our show!

    1. Hello, do you know where the Ron Kolbus Center is? We could meet there on Monday December 11 at 6:45 if that is convenient for you?

  4. Good afternoon, I have a 18-19 years old bonsai about which my 19 y.o. nephew always asks me questions about every time he comes to Montreal. I followed in 2006 a full day class at “Bonsai Gros-Bec” and chose there a bonsai and the clay pottery pot. Everything was included in the price. I would like to offer him the same thing in Ottawa where he lives. When are your next classes? Does the price include the bonsai and the pottery? How much it would cost? Thank you in advance to answer me.

    1. Bonjour Michelle, we offer a theoretical course in the fall followed by the practical workshop in the spring. The theoretical course is offered once a year in late October. Members have to take the theoretical course in order to be able to participate to the spring workshop. Our spring workshop does include the tree, the pot, the soil and the wires. Bonsai Gros-Bec does offer a one day introductory course where participants leave with a tree in a nice pot. We are not well equipped to offer such a one day course.

      1. Thank you for your prompt answer. Do you already have the dates for those classes? I’ll offer a card with a bonsai pictures with those dates if you know them now. Have a nice (and cold!) day. Michelle

        1. Hello, Sorry for the late response, I did not get any notification about pending messages…

          We do not have the dates yet for the fall theoretical courses. THe price for the fall course is normally between $25 and $30, The spring workshop is around $85 which include a tree, the pot, the soil and the wires.

  5. Hello:
    I am the President of the Russel District Horticultural Society and we are looking for a guest speaker for our May 2018 meeting. Can you help and give me suggestions for a guest speaker.
    Thank you
    Carole Van Die

    1. Hello Carole,

      We do offer presentation on bonsai to different horticultural groups. We normally charge $100 per presentation.
      May is a very busy month for us. What is your meeting date?



  6. Hi there.
    How are you.
    do you think I could come to your fall show
    and bring some trees, pots, tools to sell.
    I am happy to pay any vendor fees etc.
    thx a lot, chris , Bonsai Guy, London

    1. Hello Chris, I hope that you are doing well. Our annual show is hosted by the Embassy of Japan and we cannot accommodate vendors during the event. Sorry about that. We can certainly arrange for you to come to one of our regular meeting in either October or November.

    1. Bonjour, je vous suggère de vous joinder à notre club pour pouvoir apporté votre arbre et recevoir les conseils en personne.

  7. I would like to attend the seminar in October and I don’t know where it is held? Can I get the address of the location the meeting takes place at? I am interested in becoming a member and seen that I can attend one meeting to decide.

    1. Hello, have a look at the ‘Meeting’ section under the ‘Activities’ menu and you will have access to a map. You are welcome to come at the November 19 meeting.

  8. I want to buy a bonsai (suitable for indoors) as a gift for someone with a genuine interest but little experience caring for bonsai. Can you recommend a variety that can stay indoors and that would be appropriate for a beginner bonsai enthusiast?

    Thank you in advance for your help.
