I found this book exciting and encouraging to a beginner in the wonderful world of topiary. The ideas cover a wide range of shapes and ideas offering ideas for a quick start as well as more complex projects. The instructions are clearly written and easy to follow. The book also includes discussion on the preferable types of plants to use for the various shapes and designs presented. I continue to refer to this book often as I begin new projects.
If you are new to topiary this gives a lot of good ideas. I buy or make my topiary frame and follow the directions in the book. I would suggest using real peat moss as the base. Make sure to use compatible plants so watering is easier.
Bought this after looking on-line to get some good information on how to get started. The book I really wanted was out of stock so I opted for this one. It gives advice on types of plants to use and a general guide to creating frames but lacks any true direction in detail. I wish I would have waited and bought the one that was out of stock.
I really enjoyed this book, it was amazingly good visually as well and the content was easy to understand. I would recommend it to everyone. I really enjoyed your book and it gave me lots of great tips!If you are a garden lover check out my web site: [...]p.s I hope you're not to disappointed but give it time!
