Well illustrated, slim quarto, pp 96, rather age-toned around the margins, otherwise a very good copy in pictoral boards, with a very good dustwrapper. [These days it is becoming increasingly popular to enhance the garden and to create the idea of an "outdoor room". Using topiary is a way of enlivening the garden with living ornaments, whether in a large or small garden, on a patio terrace, or even a balcony or window ledge. Container gardening is also a popular subject, and this title shows you how to combine the two skills to create topiary in containers. Topiary, the art of shaping trees and shrubs into geometric designs has traditionally been a feature of classical gardens and is often considered suitable only for grand, formal gardens. This guide brings the subject up to date with modern, urban spaces in mind and is both a practical and inspirational gardening book. With over 16 step-by-step projects, it describes how to grow and shape topiary for containers in a variety of styles, from simple box balls and pyramids to more elaborate shapes. Aimed at gardeners with little experience, it covers the basics of cultivating, pruning and training plants. As well as the traditional box (buxus), there are also faux topiary projects using fast-growing ivy and even flowers, and the guide features advice on displaying the finished examples, a comprehensive directory of plants and a list of useful addresses.]
