Topiary Plant Pets - Christmas Gift

Grow a pet with our easy-care topiary kits. If your friends and family love animals, or are simply scissor-happy, they'll have endless hours of fun with these novel gifts. A lush green buxus plant grows through a three-dimensional aluminium mesh frame to create an evergreen animal that can be kept in shape simply by snipping a few centimetres off the growing tips. Topiary is fast becoming an absorbing hobby and one pet may not be enough to keep them amused!

Approx frame height 45cm (18in) including one buxus plant in a 9cm (3½in) pot. (Patio pots illustrated not supplied.)

These small-leaved evergreen buxus are ideal for topiary. Plant up your 9cm potted buxus into its final pot, large enough to hold the frame. Position one side of the frame over the plant and gently push the pins into the pot. Match up the other frame section, push into the pot, then clip together. Trim any growth that appears outside the frame.

Grow in either sun or partial shade, but avoid constant direct sunlight. After two growing seasons the framework will be filled. After this, you can trim any growth just outside the frame, or remove the frame and trim the plant to the original shape. After a few years your buxus can be planted into the garden. Prepare the ground well before planting and incorporate lots of organic matter. Grows well in any good garden soil.
