Topiary plants are those which have been grown and pruned into a shape which is unnatural for that particular type of plant – globes, spirals, cones, and abstract shapes. The most common varieties of plants used to create topiary are Box, Yew, Bay and Privet. Please keep in mind that, although these plants look ‘unnatural’, they are not artificial – they are living plants and need the same care and attention you would give any other plant.
It is not advisable to keep topiary in a conservatory as it is often too hot for them and they are more prone to pest attacks in close conditions where the ventilation is poor. Topiary can be planted straight into the ground or kept in pots for adorning patios, decks, doorways, etc. For more info about Topiary Plants visit: Greenhills Nursery London.
