How to Topiary
In our growing diarires we attempt to share our growing successes and failures, with a number of different plants and shrubs. In this Diamond Jubliee year we shall include edible, scented and colourful plants.
A mature topiary specimen can be very expensive, but by propagation and a little patience a whole variety of plants can obtained in an inexpensive way. In our growing diaries we will be recording the propagation we undertake - so do check back from time to time.

We also plan to create some Instant Impact Topiary using fresh cut and dried flowers, many picked straight from the garden.
Topiary is a great way to introduce children to gardening and a perfect gift for those in need of a relaxing and rewarding hobby.
For the keen gardener, topiary is a skilled art form that can test their green-fingers and result in a striking addition to their garden.
