Synopsis

It is becoming increasingly popular to enhance the garden and to create the idea of an 'outdoor room'. Using topiary is a way of enlivening the garden with living ornaments, whether in a large or small garden, on a patio or terrace, or even a balcony or window ledge. Container gardening is an ever-popular subject and this exciting new book shows you how to combine the two to create stunning topiary in containers.Topiary, the art of shaping trees and shrubs into geometric designs, has traditionally been a feature of classical gardens and was once considered suitable only for formal gardens. "Container Topiary" brings the subject thoroughly up to date with modern, urban spaces in mind and is both a practical and inspirational gardening book. With over 16 step-by-step projects, it describes how to grow and shape topiary for containers in a variety of styles, from the simple box balls and pyramids to more elaborate shapes. Aimed at gardeners with little experience, it covers the basics of cultivating, pruning and training plants. As well as the traditional box (buxus), there are also faux topiary projects using fast-growing ivy and even flowers.With advice on displaying topiary and a imprehensive directory of plants, this stunning book, with over 100 specially commissioned photographs, is sure to inspire both novice and experienced gardener alike.
