Thanks for reading my Japanese gardens blog.
The International Bonsai Arboretum is owned by William N. Valavanis and is totally dedicated to the art of bonsai. They teach bonsai care and it is a great place to buy bonsai equipment. This garden can be viewed by appointment only but it is a spectacular garden full of sculptured trees and rare plants. You can firnd it in West Henrietta in New York, it’s a suburb of Rochester.
One of the most spectacular conservatories in the whole of the United States is the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical gardens in Pittsburgh , Pensylvania. This has 13 garden rooms and six outdoor garden areas, one of which is a Japanese courtyard garden that included Japanese lanterns, a stream and a stunning bonsai collection. The good news is that this conservatory is open ALL year round , seven days a week from 9.30am to 5 pm and even later on Friday’s – 9pm.
