    I would be interested in any Galanthus cultivars, hardy orchids water plants, vegetable plants and trees or plants for a Japanese garden. I am also interested in Acer palmatum cultivars, Hornbeam hedging, Privet hedging and conifer species, or any overgrown unwanted garden shrub that can be made into a bonsai. I will remove any unwanted garden shrubs myself if necessary.
