Mid Herts Bonsai Club was founded in 1984 and currently has around 45 members including 8 committee members. The club meets on the first Wednesday of every month from 7.00pm to 10.00pm in the Mead Hall Wheathampstead. The meetings are generally based around a workshop, talk or demonstration from club members or guest speakers. Members are encouraged to bring their trees to the workshops where advice and guidance is always available. The club also runs a table show at most meetings where members can display their trees in all stages of Bonsai development, here they are judged, given advice and awarded points which go towards winning the clubs Rose Bowl Trophy and the RHS Banksian Medal. The club has a small library of Bonsai books and magazines that are available on free loan to members. Throughout the year the club holds occasional weekend workshops, displays at public events and licenced tree collecting expeditions. The Clubs Annual Show over the first weekend in June showcases the work of members.
In 2015, an invitation to exhibit at the Herts County Show resulted in a Gold Medal and the Cup for the best exhibit in the Horticultural Marquee.
Mid Herts Bonsai Club is an RHS Affiliated Society
