This area is in its original form. It is a collection of overgrown hedges that flank a pathway to the back of the house. The idea is to have a set of pedestals on which potted plants are displayed. We expect to have:

  • danger plants. This would include Agave with their wicked spikes, or Solanum pyracantha with its thorns all over the plant,
  • carnivorous plants
  • ephemeral plants, such as Alpines, that need to be showcased.
  • Bonsai – I used to enjoy doing bonsai and may start again.
