Topiaries are no longer just speciality plants. They have become very popular and are showing up in garden centers and nurseries across the country. Topiaries have been used for thousands of years, in places like Babylon and England. Today we take the mystery out of topiaries and discuss pruning trees and shrubs to look like geometric forms. As well we talk about designing topiaries, selecting the trees and shrubs and maintaining them to look their best and show you how to create small topiaries that are ideal for a deck or patio. We also address pruning hedges and shrubs.
