I thought you might like to see some of my modest collection; all of them "works in progress."
The varieties range from Pine, Cotoneaster, and Chinese Elm to Yew, Juniper and Blue Cedar. Most began their early lives as ordinary garden centre specimens for garden planting, and have been cut down to size and shaped with wire over a number of years.

John and his wife Karen have spent many hundreds of hours driving down from Doncaster to help us on our open days.
They have not only run the plant stall, but have helped with photographs for the web site, lit many thousands of candles; propogated hundreds of plants for the plant stall; served hundreds of glasses of wine; supported us when we were feeling stressed and have been there every time we needed help, or just someone to talk to.
Truly Great Friends!
