Shohin from Hedge Material

About 3 years ago, we dug up some Ilex Crenata (Japanese Holly) hedge from a client’s house.  The reason I kept them is because they had thick trunks, they were free, and were easy to grow.  Did not do much to them except kept them alive and fertilized.   Last year  I was able to transfer a couple of them using recycled bonsai soil.  They stayed alive and healthy and this fall had an opportunity to style them.  When these shrubs were collected, they were about 3 ft high and wide.  Here’s a before and after photo of one of them:
