Bonsai Show at the Arboretum

"A passion, an addiction, a compulsion after a while...where an experienced gardener refines their art." Mary Recupero has over 100 bonsai plants.

Mary Recupero, the President of the Cape Fear Bonsai Society, is excited about the 2nd Annual Bonsai Show at the Arboretum on Saturday, June 6.  Last year, the Bonsai showcase attracted hundreds of visitors interested in seeing this living art and learning how to do it for themselves. 

The Show is open from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm at the Arboretum on Oleander Drive, and educational demonstrations about plant materials and techniques will be offered at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.
