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.”
