Which Asian plants do you recommend?

The essential plant is bamboo. There are many varieties, all of them will bring an Asian touch to your garden. If you want trees, I recommend the pines but also the maple and the ginkgo biloba which offer very colorful foliage. If you want a fruit tree, the cherry tree is essential and more particularly the prunus also known as the Japanese cherry tree. As for outdoor plants, hostas, ferns and hakonechloa are very decorative.

Can we put bonsai trees in our Asian garden?

Yes, provided you maintain them well. Indeed, some bonsai trees cannot spend the year outside. You will therefore have to adapt to them and provide a greenhouse or take them home in winter. There are many bonsai trees, choose the variety according to the time you want to give your plants. Know that there are outdoor bonsai trees to prefer in an Asian garden. This is the case with cedar, elm, sequoia, pepper and even citrus.

Do you have any tips for perfecting the decor of our Asian garden?

In an Asian garden, you should plan white gravel beaches for relaxation, or a pond. Instead of the aisles, place slates or flat stones which will draw the path to take. Do not hesitate to let the foam invade your exterior, it is typically Asian! Finally, bring decorative elements such as statuettes or pretty wooden huts for birds. Our garden and gardening videos
