Garden centre visitors went bonkers for bonsais at an annual event.

Sussex Bonsai Group staged their yearly show at South Downs Nurseries in Brighton Road, Hassocks, at the weekend.

As well as demonstrations on caring for the trees, experts were also on hand to show visitors the many types and answer questions.

Ken Norman, president of the group, said: “The group hosts shows and workshops at various locations locally, with numerous experts on hand to give advice and assistance. It is always great to be able to have our annual show at South Downs Nurseries.”

Mark Hillyard, garden centre manager, added: “It is obvious that the club’s members are all passionate about promoting and widening the awareness of bonsai to as many people as possible. It was a delight to welcome them.”

Just in case you are not aware of the effect that Northern Rocks problems is having on Japan's banks, I can confirm that Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up, Bonsai Bank is cutting its branches and trading in the Kamikaze Bank have ceased trading after its shares nose dived.
At the Karate Bank 500 employees have been given the chop.

Analysts also report that something fishy is happening at the Sushi Bank as customers are getting a raw deal.
