I’m Sebastian from Poland ( southern part ).
It’s a great pleasure to join a group of Japanese gardening enthusiasts from whole world.http://www.pudelko.com.pl/herbaciarnia_satomi/galeria_-_herbaciarnia_satomihttp://www.pudelko.com.pl/ogrody_japonskie/ogrod_japonski_pisarzowicehttp://www.facebook.com/ogrod.japonskipisarzowice
My passion is a Japanese Garden and the plants deriving from far EAST.
I’m the owner of ornamental plants nursery in third generation, so I produce and sell decorative plants to other people. ( conifers, deciduous and “rhododendron group” plants and of course Japanese maples, jap azaleas, niwaki pine trees etc, etc.
I collect Japanese maple ( mostly acer palmatum, shirasavanum, japonicum ) and japanese dwarf azaleas ( about 30 varieties coming from my own production)
I have found Japanese gardens interesting during my trip to some bonsai nursery in Czech Republic many years ago and so it started…. ( books, articles, movies, dvd… ) ? fully infected by Japan ?
Few years ago I have decided to join my business with my passion and build a tea house pavilion surrounded by garden.
Garden design, rocks setting and planting are my own but the garden is still under construction…
( about 60 % of accomplishment ), each year I try to make some new part of that garden after gathering some suitable rocks, plants and money ? )… I have one rule in gardening… NO RUSH …
I have harsh, frosty winters, about –25’C / –27’C so many Japanese plants in my garden are tested by the Greater Judge… Nature ? ( spring time throwing away dead ones often happens )
I’m want to learn more about Japanese gardens…. So I travel and listen wiser and more experienced people which want to share their knowledge with younger generation.
( sorry for my english... )
