Likewise, people ask, how do you make a topiary form?
Similarly, how do you make a living succulent tree?
How do you make a live moss topiary?
Chicken wire makes an ideal material to shape your topiaries, as it’s flexible, easy to shape and has holes small enough to provide support for the moss inside. Chicken wire topiaries work with or without plants growing in the moss, as the moss expands to hide the narrow chicken wire.
Plants suitable for topiary
Typically box (Buxus sempervirens) and yew (Taxus baccata) are used, however other evergreens such as privet (Ligustrum japonicum), holly (Ilex) and Lonicera nitida can be used.
This type is made of a thick wire frame in forms that plants are trained to grow up and through. You usually see these indoors and they are often made of trailing herbs. The forms are traditional in shape and usually grown in a container. Some common forms are two or three balls on a stem, cones, wreaths and hearts.
