Ideal for that sculptural look for an entranceway or pathway, the bay tree is fully hardy, and evergreen, and very easy to care for. They can be grown in low light to full sun positions, and can even be used indoors in a light position.

Buxus Ball Topiary - box balls & cones


Box is  the  ideal plant  for formal 'natural' garden sculpture. If you are new to topiary, then a box specimen is an ideal way to begin. They are fully hardy plants, that only require watering (if in a container) and clipping to maintain the shape.
Topiary has been used in formal Italian and European gardens for hundreds of years, and our own English country gardens have some spectacular displays. Ideal as a lawn compliment, or as a patio feature, box topiary instantly gives that refined, cultured look to a small garden.

These make  extremely elegant specimens for pathways and front entranceways to the house.  Box topiary can also be used in Italian Formal Style gardens, and go well with Italian Cypress, Hibiscus, Wisteria, Jasmine, and upright conifers.

The lower photos shows our very large 65cm specimens and the middle photo the smaller 37-40cm buxus.
