Pleaching is the ancient art of weaving the branches of multiple trees or plants together so they become one living unit. You can read more about pleaching in the post from Ivy Clad here.
The images above (and below) represent the work of Jinny Blom, an amazing landscape and garden designer.
I clicked over to Jinny Blom's website after reading about pleaching, and was rewarded beyond measure.
Just one gorgeous image after another!
Jinny's work has been well received and has attracted an extraordinary level of interest from the press. Awards are aplenty which is no surprise...
Ahhh, the joys of blogging. I learned about pleaching and was entranced with the discovery of Jinny Blom's website, and entertained for hours... So excited about the garden posts I'll be working on this season!
