Topiary Trees, Frames, Equipment

Topiary is the art of 'plant sculpture', clipping and training trees and shrubs into sculptural shapes.

Topiary has been used in English Gardens for centuries to create traditional gardening shapes such as spirals, cloud pruned, pyramids, balls and others, as well as animals, characters and even corporate logos. In general the shrubs used for topiary have small leaves and dense foliage.

Topiary PlantsTopiary Frames can be used as a guide for growing topiary and English Box is one of the more common plants used, Yew, Solanums, Ficus, Rosemary, Olives, Conifers and Hebes are other commonly used topiary plants.
Specialist Topiary Shears are available for trimming topiary plants.Artificial Topiary plants are also available from some suppliers.

Topiary has been a popular feature of english gardens for many years and perhaps the displays in many gardens and at the Chelsea Flower show indicate the popularity of the art today.
