3 ways to make a topiary

How to make a topiary
I’ve had a thing for topiaries ever since I could pronounce the word. Something about a bush being cut into the shape of a ball thrills me. I’ve always assumed that there was a specific science to it and I’m sure there is for some of those crazy animal shapes, but turns out, they’re quite simple and MUCH cheaper to make on your own–as all good DIY projects are. I was excited to learn the art from Tonya LeMone, who owns the most beautiful enchanting garden Perennial Gardens. She has a true love of creating beauty with her gardens and flower knowledge. I met her last year for a shoot and I keep on going back because 1) her gardens are so lovely and 2) she is so lovely. Today she is sharing with us three ways to make topiaries: ivy globe, boxwood, and rosemary topiaries and 2 ways to put the scraps to good use. Because resourcefulness is a lost skill.
