Giving a dragon some backbone

It's that time of year again when Stewarts help to decorate the display stand of locally-based play equipment company Hags at the Saltex trade show in Windsor. This year the centrepiece of the stand is a 22 tonne dragon's head (big enough for a tall chap like me to walk through the mouth!). A turfed mound was created to represent the dragon's body, and we put criss-crossed Phormiums along the crest to represent its spiky backbone.

As for the actual process of planting shrubs into a freshly-turfed and not-very-compacted mound of topsoil, don't ask....
Incidentally, the dragon's head is currently still for sale by Hags, if anyone is interested!!!
