Brazilian Rain Tree Transplanting Workshop (Saturday, June 18, 2022)
Native to Brazil, the Rain Trees is one of our most popular species at NEBG. It’s popular for its delicate branches & tiny light-green leaves and spines. The leaves fold up at night and unfold in the morning light. In June, we hand selected a several of Rain Trees from our Florida nursery – specifically for this workshop – for you to choose from (or bring your own rain tree).
We’re fortunate to have Dr. Luis Carreiro, MD host this workshop. He’s an expert Brazilian Rain Tree artist and has one of the most beautiful Bonsai you will ever see. In fact, his Brazilian Rain Tree won the people’s choice award in 2015.
What to Expect:
During this workshop, you will learn about the art, science and history of Bonsai trees through a hands-on experience. Lou, will guide the group in planting their very own bonsai tree (or repotting your Brazilian Rain Tree), demonstrating key techniques for pruning and plant care. Everyone will get their hands dirty in planting their very own Bonsai tree. It’s an experience you will enjoy for years to come!
