While topiary trees are a stunning feature to have in your garden, it’s essential to ensure they maintain their shape and health. Replanting your topiary tree is the first thing to do once your shrub arrives. Our topiary is grown in the field and then containerised for delivery, so it is important that you re-plant your topiary into the ground or larger planters.
Like with all plants, watering and feeding are crucial for health and development, especially after the trees have been replanted. Topiary trees need to be watered regularly. Don’t rely on rainwater. The water doesn’t always run into the soil, so water your plant at the base. We offer a range of specialist feeds and fertilisers which enrich the soil and the foliage of evergreen plants, perfect for topiary.
Topiary trees are relatively low-maintenance and should be pruned yearly. It’s advised to prune topiary in early or late summer.
We’ve put together a guide, which provides more information on how to care for topiary trees.
