Topiary Forms (Frames) Ideas...

meadow_lark(7)December 7, 2005

Hello all!

IÂve been lurking in this forum for a while. IÂm brand new to topiaries (but not to Garden Web). I have just purchased two topiary forms: 1. a Victorian shoe (about 2 feet long) and 2. a swan

I have been trying to make my own forms for a while, but IÂve not really been successful. If anyone has any websites or books they can recommend, IÂd appreciate it.

During my searches, I can across the following site:

http://www.triffidpark.com.au/htm_pages/wire_and_topiary_frames.htm

If you scroll down, it offers several ideas on all kinds of forms (frames) for those of you that want to "give it a go".

Many thanks Meadow Lark

I suggest The Complete Book of Topiary. It's a neat book with lots of 'projects' with detailed instructions for many sizes and shapes and various types of plants you can use. I re-read the book (because it's fun) about once a year.
