    Topiary plants Half standard Topiary

    There are many evergreen options including Prunus lusitanica (Portugal laurel) which clips beautifully and is shade tolerant. Laurus nobilis (bay) which prefers a sunny well drained site - the fragrant leaves can be dried and used in cooking!

    Holly is a useful specimen to keep in containers as it is slow growing -  Ilex argentea marginata - variegated holly really brightens up a front garden particularly in winter; Ilex Nellie Stevens is shade tolerant and has lots of red berries! Photinia Red Robin makes a great specimen in a sunny site with bright red new foliage in spring.

    For something more unusual the small variety of Scots pine -  Pinus sylvestris Nana Watereri makes a stunning half standard and will cope with windy sites.

    Liquidambar Gumball, Arbutus unedo (strawberry tree) and Elaeagnus ebbingei (silverberry) are other unusual half standards in the nursery - come and see...

  • Time to trim Viburnum tinus

    Viburnum tinus is a versatile evergreen shrub that can be used for hedging or pruned into topiary shapes - spheres or half-standards.

    Pink buds stay on all winter and cream flowers show in spring. After the flowers have finished they can be pruned to retain the shape.
