Topiary In The Winter Garden – Topiary can be as traditional or as modern, as abstract or representational as you wish. All that counts is that you choose the right plant for cutting, pruning and shaping and that it fits in with the rest of the winter garden.
For traditional evergreen topiary use Buxus (box). It can be used to make all kinds of shapes, from squares to balls and peacocks. The small leaves mean you can create precise shapes with tight angles, and it is quite fast growing, at about 30 cm (12 in) a year. Box responds well to regular clipping.

Positioning Plants For Maximum Effect – The standard advice for getting the best visual effect from your plants is to study their future home BEFORE making your purchase. They may be required for general decoration – a bright splash of color or a medley of green foliage to liven up a dull room. Once you have brought them home you should move the pots around the room so as to get the most pleasing effect.
In other cases the choice is more limited – the plants are required to do a specific job, such as covering an empty fireplace or serving as a divider between parts of a room. Here the final position is already fixed, so you should look carefully at the background before making your decision.
