Topiary Gardening
Indoor Gardening For The Renter


Courtesy of Cliff Finch's Zoo

Topiary gardening dates back before the English Garden, and is still seen today in beautiful displays of art work. These types of arrangements are generally seen in  elegant homes, quaint boutiques and yes, even at Disneyland!


You can create these masterpieces in your own home, for a fraction of the cost to purchase one, if you know where to find your materials.

Cliff Finch's Zoo, has been a steady source for supplying topiary frames since 1981.  Their online catalog is filled with a large assortment of frames from tabletop to baskets (which were created for Martha Stuarts Living Magazine). 

Here is information from Cliff Finch's Zoo, to help you get started...  

The tabletop frames are designed primarily for training vines, such as ivy. The vine should be trained to wind closely around the wire. If several vines are used, work each vine around the wire between the leaves of previously wrapped vines, so as not to crush them. You also should take care not to leave loops of vine extending from the wire. This could result in a distorted shape, or you might accidentally cut the loops while trimming.

In general, small-leafed ivies or vines should be used on the smallest frames, and larger-leafed plants on the larger frames. If a large leafed vine is used on a small frame, the shape can be lost. The table tops are excellent for beginners because they are easy to plant and quick to cover.
