We do strongly recommend to use plants that like the same conditions. Rockery type plants, which are invasive and low growing, make great topiaries. When using hardy plants for the topiary frame, it can stay outside during the winter. With non-hardy plants it is best to water the topiary before the frost, at least once a month and leave in a protected area. Smaller leaved plants work best on smaller animals.


All metal wires have a diameter from 2 to 18mm. and can be pre-mossed and planted if specified.

 

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.

Mossed and planted items - as the moss is tight within the topiary frames, it can serve as soil and it is possible to grow all kinds of plants into the figure. We can plant these for you. Please note that planting styles may vary from those shown, pictures used are for illustration purposes only. Planted topiary should be treated like a hanging basket, it will need regular watering, especially while the plants are establishing themselves, and occasional feeding.

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.

    breath of fresh air

    shaun perkins

    This is a breath of fresh air, going back to the basics. People nowadays want to make the most intricate topiary around but sometimes you have to appreciate the more simple of things. Take this globe for example, it's a sphere, but when filled with moss and placed in your garden it becomes more than that, it looks like it belongs there. I would recommend this if not only for the quality but the price too, great frames

    Simple and well executed

    suzy gardner

    I know, I know... It's a ball... But it's a very pretty ball! I have a few of these either side of the walkway to my decking and I've incorporated some beautiful climbing plants to add to them. It looks beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the end result!
