General Discussion / Best for Sloping Hills
Last post by tongwuzi - December 20, 2020, 06:22:27 pm
I am seeking some recommendations for bushes, trees that would be suitable to a sloping, some-part falling hill at a creek side. The site is currently scattered with aged oak. This is with the 5 zone, with moderate winters.

I am so happy to hv this forum as an indispensable resource. I belong to a saltwater reefer forum as well and it has been extremely helpful. It will be nice to share my passion for Japanese Gardens with other like minded members. I am two months in to the first phase of my project and look forward to fellow gardeners sharing their knowledge with me. I am here to learn and as much as I would like to b true to the guidelines and structure of the Japanese garden, I realize that it is a journey and about enjoying the process.

Thank you for replying to this post.  We do see questions about how to go about finding an internship or apprenticeship in Japanese gardening, so I believe your information will be appreciated!

Thanks again,

Good to hear.  When JGO pursued this, the prison administration declined due to safety concerns.  But now there is a Japanese garden where a Japanese garden is most needed!

I know this is an old thread, but it's still online and without answer, so I like to share how I got my placement for a landscaping-training in Japan:
I live in Switzerland. Nine years ago I had the great opportunity to make a one year training at a small but very good landscaping company in Hamamatsu, Japan.
I contacted agrimpuls.ch, a group founded by the Swiss farmers Association. They offer placements for exchange training with foreign countries, especially in farming, but also in gardening. So they replied, asked for mor information about me and sent me some forms to fill out and after one or two appointments with the responsible person I had my contract with the host family in Japan. I think I received the contract a bit more than 6 months in advance of my training.
Maybe there is a similar organisation in your country where you could ask?

Best regards
