A recent trip to Norway provided me with the chance to visit perhaps the most northerly tropical garden area in Europe.
Just off the coast of Stavanger is a truly remarkable garden, that you MUST visit should you ever be in the area. The garden spreads out over 20 acres and features a bonsai and bamboo garden area complete with rocks, ponds, waterfalls and a lot more.
I have put together a series of photgraphs from my visit on Pinterest and you can see the photographs by CLICKING HERE.
Look closely at the spacing of the elements – less is more in a Japanese garden and the use of shrubs, plants, trees and rocks very sparingly merely adds to the viewing pleasure and can give you some really good ideas for your own Japanese garden space at home.
This Norwegian Japanese garden oasis has everything in it – Koi, water features, bamboo, Acers / Maples, rock formations, Bonsai, beautifully chosen and positioned low level shrubs. A very important Japanese garden in Europe and it was a pleasure to visit.
Simplicity and balance is the key for a relaxing and eye catching beautiful Japanese garden!
