Thank you, Todd

Thanks, Todd. I'm in London. don't know what zone. Up until now I used to leave all my trees outside. I did lose some nice ones last winter. But now that my garden is sorted out, I will get a greenhouse before winter so that some of my trees can go in there.

Cheers

@ Rob : Thanks Rob. Glad you like the display. I'd love to see what you did with the concrete blocks. Be nice if you could post some pics.


Here's how I used the concrete blocks. Round, square and rectangles covered with stucco but unpainted. Very sturdy - up over 10 years.
My bushes need a bit of trimming.


Some others - they get a bit moldy from the sprinklers so once in a while I pressure wash them. I also mix them with wood pedestals for variety. It adds to the garden design. For the pedestals behind the pool I actually made a form and cast my own tops with concrete. That was a lot of work so for the next ones I used pre-made landscape pavers available at home garden centers in the USA. the pavers are a bit more brittle but that was a problem only once.



A couple more.

Here is some pics of mine. Some time I asked about Chimney Liners. Well here they are. The decorative cinder blocked I found on a pallet in the parking lot of my local nursery. They used them for displays and were selling them for $1.00 each.








The trees are still babies as I am a novice and the oldest is only been a bonsai for 2 years

I've not really used the garden...only so far as to have a display area. There are many Japanese style plants, lanterns etc in the rest of the garden but this is my own way of enjoying my trees.
