Topairy Shapes for Stroller


Topairy Shapes for  Stroller

I have a passion for making Topiary shapes whenever it is possible, the small balls were once an over grown Cottoneaster Hedge which we cut right back to the ground, as the new growth started to appear I trimmed it into ball or cones shapes to give more interest. I have done this throughout the borders with any suitable plants and shrubs, ie conifers, Euonymus, Hebe, box, and anything with a small leaves, nothing is safe from me lol

Aw gawgus as Cristina would say. Thanks for this Carole, the Euonymus is now definitely in for the chop, trouble is this topiary lark is a bit like this site ~ ADDICTIVE.lol.

Brilliant! I do love topiary but I'm afraid I don't have the discipline to keep them in shape. Maybe one day I'll have a go though!

Thanks Janey, Sandra. Phyliss, and Karen, they make the garden more interesting but like you say can be addictive lol
