Awards and Judge Comments

Beautifully trimmed, striking layout. There are almost too amny different species used, however. It's hard for the eye to know where to land.

Karen Randall

Excellent use of stem plants! I can only make one remark. Think about your corners they can make a huge diference. Good job!

Luis Navarro

A magic use of stem plants indeed. Luxuriant growth is achieved among most species used and the picture seems complete.
