Hi Dan

I have just come across your site, it’s superb.
I love your ‘hedge’ planting, I know you said it was a bit of fun but I have never seen anything like it before, it is so different and I am inspired to try something like it myself.
I had one of my landscapes in the Newstead exhibition this year, it was a small juniper planted with limestone rocks to look like a limestone ridge, John helped me to put it together only a couple of years ago at one of his workshops. I was on duty that day as one of John’s stewards but I believe you passed comment to one of my colleagues that it reminded you of somewhere near where you walk, to get a comment from you was fantastic, it was a shame I couldn’t speak to you in person but you said one of the small rocks was not the same colour as the other ones, I had only a few rocks at the time of planting but I have now replaced it and it does blend in better with the others, thank you so much for taking the time to look at it, I have never had a tree in a show before so it was a thrill to be chosen and apparently it came third in the publics choice but I feel the tree will be even better in a few years time with a bit more work.
Your books inspired me to take up bonsai and I really do enjoy it, it’s a very creative and rewarding hobby.
Thanks
Chris Wainwright
