Box Hedging and Topiary


Topiary can easily be defined as the training or clipping of perennial plants, trees and shrubs in order to develop and keep clearly defined shapes.  They are hugely popular nowadays and can often be seen gracing entrances to homes, gardens, buildings and quite possibly every National Trust garden in the UK!  However, in order to create their signature ‘perfect’ shape, you really need a good clipping technique and attention to detail – for some of us though, this may not be possible or you simply don’t have the time or patience to keep real plants and trees maintained to this standard. 

Help is at hand though at the Riverside Garden Centre with our great range of artificial topiary trees and shrubs.  You’ll find these artificial plants really life-like and with little maintenance they’re a notable, easy and convenient alternative.  Unlike silk plants, plastic plants can be left outdoors for prolonged periods of time (or simply enjoyed indoors too) - most artificial topiary is plastic.
