Digging Deeper, A Garden Conservancy Event: Topiary, Art of the Clipped Form

July 13, 10 amnoon.
$40 Non-Member; $30 Garden Conservancy Member

Topiary is the practice of training a plant into a shape through careful and repeat clipping and other manipulations. Topiary is also the plant that has been topiarized. At Landcraft Garden Foundation, we often assemble assorted classic topiaries (balls and cones) when building a tablescape for events. Singularly or in a group, nothing elevates display making as quickly as the topiary.

Get the inside scoop on how to train a young houseplant cutting to a photo-ready tabletop topiary. One ball, two balls or three; cones, pillars, spirals and pompoms – learn to clip and shear the perfect form, then make your own. All attendees go home with a clay-potted topiary plant and the know-how to grow it strong.
