Whether it is a box spiral, a tree pruned to look as though green clouds have been caught in its branches, or a simple evergreen ball, topiary in all its many forms is as popular today as it was in Roman times where the villas of the rich were lined with avenues of animals clipped out of box and yew. The Italians revived topiary during the Renaissance and have kept this garden craft alive ever since. They give us spirals and fanciful shapes but it is the Japanese who have given us the beautiful cloud pruned evergreens that we admire today. Although these large specimens can take some years to grow and train even the most intricate, once trained, is easily clipped.
Buxus Sempervirens, and spirals of Yew, Taxus baccata we have some of the finest specimens that you can find. Whether you want cones, to stand either side of a doorway, or cylinders of Yew, to add structure to a border, you will find them here at D&M Garden Centre. If we don’t have them in stock to be sure to ask one of our team and they will help you to get the perfect topiary for your garden.
