In addition to many black and white pines, Kentaro Shiino’s Kanagawa garden featured great examples of a number of varieties, including some beautiful junipers.
One of the junipers was delicate enough to merit a post and zip tie support. To prevent tipping, the pot sat in a custom support.
Apparently size matters not in Shiino’s garden. Am curious about the style or styles in which the large tree below will be shaped.

Some equally impressive deciduous trees were found around the garden, including this very nice Japanese maple.

As Frank, Akio and I left the garden, we passed by two of the larger white pines I’d seen in pots.

I can only imagine what it would be like to repot these – let alone how much akadama I’d need to fill the containers!
