Topical Times – Nursery border

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 finishIMG_0265 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!

IMG_0024It was really a case of looking through our sales areas for suitable material that would not only fill the space but also complement each other and the existing plants in the vicinity.

Plants were selected, holes were dug, root balls loosened and the whole thing came together really quite quickly.IMG_0020

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.

IMG_0027The 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.IMG_0025

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!
