Topiaries

What are Topiaries?

Topiaries are plants or trees that are pruned or, in some cases, grafted to create a tree form or a certain shape. These trees are elegant and add an upscale look to your landscape. Topiaries are often grown in pots for an even more polished look.

How to Care for Topiaries

Topiaries require the same care as regular plants except for the additional pruning. Topiary plants will need to be trimmed once or twice per year to keep their shape. For most topiaries, the best time to prune is in late spring or early summer after the first big flush of growth. This makes it easy to keep the clean lines by simply removing the new growth each year.
