A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Nursery border
Last Thursday we decided to take advantage of the continuing warm weather and finish planting a border between my garden and the nursery. The open areas of soil had become a big attraction to both the dogs and the cat resulting in unwanted mess both inside and outside the house for which I would obviously get the blame!
Some of our granite lanterns were included with the planting. This gave us the opportunity to focus the lanterns in front of our visitors and also to display them in a garden setting.
The advantages of using mature plants can be seen immediately. A pleasing result is obtained instantly and the garden gives the impression that it has been there for a very long time rather than just a few minutes.
We will continue to try and offer suitable mature material, granite lanterns and oriental fencing panels for those customers trying to add a Japanese touch to their garden ……………….instantly!
