Ever wanted to learn how to grow a bonsai, those remarkable little potted trees meticulously pruned into artistic shapes?

Here’s your chance. The Louisiana Bonsai Society is holding its show from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, at the Baton Rouge Garden Center, 7950 Independence Blvd., Baton Rouge.

There will be bonsai for sale, a raffle and a bonsai lecture at 2 p.m. on both days. Admission is free.

The society is a not-for-profit organization that meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Garden Center. Anyone interested in bonsai is welcome. For more information, call Lowell Tilley at (225) 272-6744 or email lowelltilley@gmail.com.
