Thanks guys.

Oh come on, you only like that for being the most ill thought out (or perhaps best thought out) nursery names ever.

Hi Ces,
Check out dragongardennursery.com
Walter Liew and his lovely wife Ann very generously showed us around their Bonsai Nursery in July 2014.
The setting is spectacular and dramatic at the foot of volcanic mountains.
Walter is well into his eighties and has some old trees he has been training for decades.
The Address its 41-909 Mahailua Street, Waimanalo and is about 45 minutes from Waikiki.
Maybe ring first to check they are there.
Safe trip,
John
