    Jay,
    welcome to th site. Where are you in Uk? What trees do you have right now? You may be near a bonsai nursery that you can visit and get started if you do not have any. I always say it is a good idea to join a club to get an insight into what others have, it is also a good source of good cheap material and you will know where it comes from. If you look o the F.O.B.B.S web site you will find a list of most of th clubs in the UK.
    Ask your questios and I will try to answer,
    Geoff.

    Hi Geoff, I'm in Sheffield. I'm thinking of joining the South Yorkshire Bonsai Society - do you know it?

    Ok, Jay, good luck with the club. I am in Wiltshire, so no I don't know the club, but I am sure you will find them a friendly group. I currently go to four clubs each month, they are all different and I love it.
    Geoff.

    Our web site is http://blackmorevalebonsaigroup.co.uk we are having a talk tonight by Chris Thomas who is one of th best bonsai growers in the country. He is doing group planting. I am doing a video of the whole night as well as pictures. Then on Monday I am off to Holland to a large nursery where I will be looking to get one or two new trees,
    Geoff.
