Each year, Cheekwood hosts a Bonsai Viewing Stones Show in honor of these delightful trees and the people who grow them. Some of the specimens on display are a century old. If you would like to try your hand at creating the perfect Bonsai, pre-designed Bonsai, instructional books and videos can be purchased, and trainers are on hand to help.
