SHAPE NA­TURE

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

Not all clev­erly shaped plants take years of care­ful and artis­tic clip­ping to per­fect. Think be­yond the stan­dard “ball on a stick” and look at cloud topi­ary and es­paliered trees (trees that are trained flat against a wall). Lay­er­ing clipped plants adds depth

(a bit like a stage set).

Try gar­den­clinic.com.au for how-to’s.

Tak­ing shape Topi­ary of­fers hours of fun for an arty gar­dener.
