A festive feature for the garden
Topiary makes a great focal point in any garden. The beautiful shapes make for a great feature in both classic and contemporary gardens.
These ornamental plants have been around since the Egyptian era, and is as popular now as it was then. With the right topiary plants, you can turn a garden from mundane to stunning!
All of our Topiary can be container grown, which makes them ideal plants for patios and urban garden design.
These days, topiary shaping is as much science as art – plants are photographed from all angles and then a computerised trimmer (like a robot) snips all around the foliage to create a symmetrical shape.
With some outdoor fairy lights you can used topiary plants as mini Christmas trees in the garden.
From keen gardeners to new home owners, this is a perfect gift for a loved one.

Evergreens – look fab in winter!
With evergreen topiary or hedging you can brighten someone’s garden this Christmas with green full hedging no matter the frosty scene outside. Evergreen plants offer consistent leaf cover for a full hedge look year-round.
The fullness of the foliage creates a natural green screen perfect for keeping gardens secluded from general view. Evergreen plants, dependent upon the species, also have excellent sound-absorbing capabilities and popular in built-up, urban areas.
They can also act as a natural windbreak for homes and gardens in general but are particularly suitable for those with a more exposed aspect. Evergreen hedging can act as a highly effective pollutant absorbent, helping to filter toxic particles from the air, generated by traffic emissions.
With the permanent leaf cover, the air in the vicinity is consistently cleaner. Environmentally, evergreen hedges have a myriad of positives. They help stabilise the ground and prevent soil erosion. They’re an ideal flood prevention measure, soaking up excess groundwater before it can reach hard surfaces or homes.
Pot Grown Hedge Plants
Pot grown hedging plants are probably the most convenient and easiest way of planting a new hedge with a high success rate as the roots have been completely protected by the pot.
There is no rush to plant pot grown hedges straight into the ground. As long as the plants are being watered they can wait a few weeks to be planted, meaning you can leave them as they are whilst the festivities are still going.
With no seasonal restrictions and no rush to plant, pot grown hedging is a perfect gift for Christmas.
