Great fun even if you are not a gardener!! No need to get your hands dirty if not keen.. Everyone succeeds My Kokedama may not be perfect, but I feel inspired to try again- hopefully in spite of COVID, we can get together and make another one. Don’t think I will give up my day job yet, but one could certainly give one as a gift in future.
