The Albuquerque Bonsai Club had a field trip to The Arboretum Tomé on Saturday October 19th to view the grounds and look for Bonsai plant specimens.
The Club had access to all tree specimens grown at the Arboretum. Many of these are in one gallon containers a good size to start your Bonsai. The Arboretum serves as the production nursery for Trees That Please Nursery so has a great variety of tree species available. The group asked lots of questions and were able to roam the Arboretum grounds.
