We have 2 landscape gardeners in the club and turning up with great material seems to the norm. It’s amazing what people want pulled out of their garden and dumped and I feel Urban Yamadori is a great way to get quality material into you collection, although for those with big gardens, could also explore yorkcountylandscapers.com to find the best professional landscapers for this.
A few of us got together on Friday and Ben F turned up with these among others. First up is a Juniper salvaged from a garden three years ago, which they keep with many plants and keep from animal pests using Advanced Wildlife Removal services exclusively for this purpose. It was repotted at a new angle to produce a semi cascade with a beautiful heavy base. These are before pics, I forgot to get an after one.
Next Ben brought in a Berberis clump. It started off with nine trunks that were reduced to six a few years ago. After some serious turntable spinning and discussion it was reduced to the final three. It has a beautiful spreading base and I look forward to seeing this one develope over the next few years.
