Details

Topiary frame information - the topiary wire frames are delivered with cable ties. All frames consist of two or more parts connected by cable ties, making it easy to fill with moss or to clip together over a plant to make a classic topiary figure.

Mossed topiary items - these give an immediate impact in your garden as you do not have to wait for a plant to grow. For these, the moss is packed very tightly and is treated with Mossgreen (a water based colourant) to avoid browning and for better moisture retention. Mossed topiary figures require no water or nutrition as the moss is already dried, and it can be left outside.

Dimensions


All main metal wires have a diameter from 2 to 18mm and the smaller wires are from 0.7 to 1.5mm and about 2cm from each other.

How to do it

Instant Moss topiary is just that – You can have your chosen topiary shape and feature today. We start with a metal or mesh fame. This comes in two parts and will be fixed together by cable ties. The traditionalist can buy this frame and fix it around box hedges or trees.

We however fill these frames with sphagnum moss, the same type as used to line hanging baskets. The two halves of the frame are packed and crammed with moss as tight as possible and then cable tied together. Excess and protruding moss is then trimmed using scissors. Many people are then happy with their chosen animal or shape and introduce it as a maintenance free ‘mossed’ feature to the garden.

The finishing touch is planting up your chosen animal or shape. We soak the moss shape. Using a screwdriver we poke holes where wish to plant and insert the young plants. Larger plants should actually be secured from the inside before securing with ties. We find semparvariums are excellent plants to use since they quickly grow. The worst that will happen now is that the shape gets too wet over winter and the moss springs out over the frame. In which case trim the moss in the spring. Keep it watered as you would a hanging basket and plants will continue to flourish in it.

    A great frame

    earl pierce

    As someone who's been gardening for over 40 years you can smell quality on certain decorative pieces... and this stuff stinks! The metal wiring is nice and thick to account for bending and posing, making sure it doesn't snap in the process, the frame opens nicely allowing you to add your own moss or plant your flowers and the whole topiary frame looks like the source material! Very impressed with this frame, would definitely recommend to others

    A lovely green

    I opted for the pre-mossed version of this frame as I'm just starting with gardening and would probably mess it up if it was left for me to do. The green colour on the moss looks beautiful and the look it adds to my garden is priceless.

    Larger than life!

    Thankfully this butterfly frame is larger than a real one, otherwise the pricing would be a little ridiculous! This is quite a large frame and it really deserves any praise you throw at it. It's beautiful
