HOUSTON PLANT AND GARDEN PARADISE: ADDING A TOPIARY TO YOUR GARDEN
Having a well-pruned topiary in your garden can add grace and exquisiteness to your landscaping. However, if you are not a professional or hobbyist gardener, you might find maintaining the topiary a daunting task. Thus, it’s a smart move to seek help from a professional gardener or florist to create a topiary in Houston for your garden. Before you seek their help, however, here are some steps you’ll need to take first. Choosing the Plants First and foremost, you need to select the plants that will be part of the topiary. It is recommended to start with small shrubs of English Ivy, Boston Ivy, or periwinkle, since you will easily be able to mold it during its growth period. Adding Frames Not every topiary requires a frame, but it is completely up to you whether or not you want to add a frame to your topiary. Frames are actually good since they allow the shrubs to grow in a certain direction and will indicate when the shrubs need pruning.
