On a recent visit to Australia, I fell in love with the shop displays in Burleigh Heads that included suspended string plants. I found out that these were ‘kokedama’; a centuries old form of garden art that originated in Japan and similar to the technique of bonsai. The trend is growing in the UK and hanging indoor gardens are fun to make. Come and join us a make your very own kokedama.
