September brought a unique learning opportunity. I attended a Japanese Garden Pruning Workshop sponsored by Sukiya Living Magazine (Journal of Japanese Gardening) at Shin-Boku Nursery in Wentworth, NH.
What an amazing experience it was! We learned advanced pruning techniques and practiced on some very special plant material. The transformation of humble plants to stunning specimens was breathtaking!
The most rewarding element of the weekend was the time spent making connections, sharing experiences, and working in the garden with the select group of passionate and talented people in attendance.
