Tempted by topiary:

I have been given two topiary trees.

I call them ” My little men”.

Now I must get to grips with how to look after them.

I have ordered two metal planters to put them in.

They need a good watering.

Feeding with a slow release fertilizer comes next.

Good drainage will be provided by adding crocks to the bottom of the planter.

Perhaps some gravel.

Lime based soil is best.

Lastly pruning is best done in mid–late summer.

I have some special shears.

That is all I need I think.

Keep an eye out for an update on my new adventure!
