Start of the new growing season

Looks like spring is finally arriving here in the midlands.  Most of my Bonsai are waking up from their winter dormancy.

 I have used the last few days to tidy my mame and shohin bonsai and re-pot were necessary.

Having a bit of nice and relatively warm and dry weather is a definitely a bonus.

Just a couple of pictures.

Tranquil Plants - Something a little bit different

My friend Stephan popped in the other day and dropped of a sample of his plant range.
He is just starting his new Business Tranquil Plants and was looking for a bit of feedback.  As you can see by the picture, he has taken House plants to the next step to make them contemporary and unique.
His inspiration comes from a traditional Japanese method called kokedama, where the plants roots are wrapped in moss rather than displayed in a pot.

My wife loves the red Peace Lilly, so I you are looking for something a bit different and special, (not long now until Valentines day!) have a look at his website for a great range of plants.
