Topiary

Thank you so much for your interesting replies and amazing pics.  Verdun and Keenongreen how do you get your shapes? I am guessing many years of experience. Did you learn by using frames originally? I Will have to treat myself a LB Gold and a starter frame. Any ideas of a good supplier for those? Thanks

Hi everyone, having mentioned wanting to buy a Pittosporum recently and being told they were good for topiary, it got we wondering what other shrubs/trees might be good for it. Also, I was wondering if many of you do any topiary as I would love to see pics and would be interested to know how easy/difficult it is ? I am not thinking of creating animals or anything like that but just to be able to keep something in shape would be good!  I can't even keep my buxus balls spherical!

Thanks Dove, Sorry I thought I read they grew much bigger than that! but if Verdun says they are happy being kept, then that should be fine. It is just my usual problem of putting things up on my 'banked' area where they are already up on a three foot high wall so I have to factor that in, otherwise it's all going on on top (if you see what I mean)    Thanks to Verdun also.

I am considering purchasing a Pittosporum , possibly an 'Elizabeth'  as I love the variegated colouring but I have noticed that 'Pitto's' tend too grow pretty big. I was wondering, are they fast growers? is it possible to keep them under control? or could anyone recommend anything similar but not as big?

Thanks for replies, I was hoping to use Verdones lawn weed killer (no feed) is that ok?

Could anyone tell me if it is ok to use lawn weed killer at the moment, considering it has been so mild and some people are still mowing. Thanks

Can anyone tell me if they know where I might get a pair of good 'old fashioned' rubber gardening 'clogs'. I would like to replace my old ones but I am not a fan of these lightweight croc-type materials which is what the g/c and indeed most people seem to be stocking now. I realise it is because they are lighter but I actually prefer the weight of mine. Thanks

Sorry to jump in, but may I ask, does this mean Osteo's are not good in pots during the winter? ( i have two of them that are looking fine at the moment) thanks
