I'm   Sebastian from  Poland ( southern part ).

It's a great pleasure to join a group of Japanese gardening enthusiasts from whole world.




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... )

Oh Sabastian my boy, you have wonderful English but more important you have the eyes and heart of a Japanese Gardener!  Just a wonderful garden and Tea House.  I appreciate your care and patience, welcome to our forum, I look forward to your posts.

All the Polish people I have met have had a vest for life and kindness in their hearts, looks like we will get to know another example of this.

Your garden is stunning,


Hello Friends,

Great Thanks and bow to You.

I hope to share and exchange knowledge about jap gardens with You.   

I hope you will find my humble knowledge helpful... I'll do my best.

Hi Sebastian... Do you have some trees for sale ? Can you manage export from Poland to Norway with documents of safe food authority?? I am going to buy next spring about 4-5 trained or "NIWAKI" trees and just looking around the Europe, where can I get trees which survive norwegian clima / -30C about 3-4 months a year../

Thank you for info.. Best regards and good luck with your beautiful garden :)

All the best Ales, Norway
