One of the major fashions in western gardening in the late ninteenth and early twentieth centuries was the Japanese style. The most successful exporter of plants from Japan was the Yokohama Nursery Company, founded in 1890 by father-and-son team Uhei and Hamakichi Suzuki in Yokohama, Japan. The firm issued English-language catalogues for the export market. As the firm's fame and popularity grew, it opened branches abroad, including Shanghai, New York and London. The firm exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show between 1916 and 1939 and is still in operation today: https://www.yokohamaueki.co.jp/en/.
