Everything you need to know
Topiary has been a popular feature in gardens since the Romans and it’s easy to see why. Elegance, style, and a little bit of grandeur adds flair to gardens and entrances. There’s only one problem… it’s incredibly hard to create it. Until now...
Our range of stylish artificial topiary plants and trees offers a short-cut to achieving the garden of your dreams. You won’t need to hone your pruning skills to achieve that perfect spiral, nor will you need to worry about box-blight. Just buy, unbox, and pop it in your garden.
Our range of topiary comes in all shapes and sizes. Choose from hanging topiary balls (inc steel chain), single and triple ball topiary, and stunning spirals to our favourite lollipop tree.
Available sizes range from 70cm (2.5ft) bay bushes, standard 120cm (4ft) trees all the way to impressive 180cm (6ft) spirals and ball trees.
We offer most styles and shapes in a variety of foliage types. Box, buxus or boxwood is the most common in both the artificial and natural worlds. This is the one that has been sculpted since Roman times. However if you’re looking for something a little different we also offer bay and cedar options.
All of our faux topiary arrives in a plain black pot. This should be put into a slightly larger and more decorative pot when it arrives with you. This will increase stability and help the tree blend into it’s new environment.
Potting your tree is simple. You can watch our full potting guide here, or follow these basic steps:
- Select a pot, with drainage hold, which is slightly larger than the faux trees starter pot
- Pop the tree into the pot and ensure it is straight
- Fill around the pot with sand or soil and compact
- Top off with decorative gravel
Our artificial trees are designed to be low faff for you, and they will be… trust us! Arranging the foliage sounds complex, but in this case, it’s really just fixing up any foliage that was flattened in the box.
To do this, start at the bottom of your tree and gently work the foliage out. Remember that topiary is designed to be tight… so in other words, you don’t need to do too much.
If in any doubt, give us a buzz and one of our team will be happy to help 😊
Our whole range of outdoor artificial topiary trees is UV resistant which extends their lifespan outside. However, there’s still a couple of things you can do to ensure your new tree has a happy and long life.
If your tree is potted, rotate it from time to time to ensure any weathering happens evenly. During extreme weather like high winds or prolonged rainfall, try to protect your topiary. This can be moving it indoors or to a sheltered area or protecting it if it can’t be moved.
The other, which applies to natural wood topiary trees, is to apply stain to the base of the tree on an annual basis.
