Topiary Talks & Tuition

Talks, demonstrations and inter active workshops, are held at our field stock area in the Walled Garden at Copped Hall, at Garden Clubs, Shows & Associations, as well as RHS Wisley and English Heritage properties.

James gives expert advice and guidance on how to cut topiary, ‘step by step’, one to one tuition in a supervised workshop environment, where participants are ‘let loose’ on un-cut Buxus plants encouraging design inspiration.

A typical sample of the structure of the tuition:

  • Understanding the different varieties of Buxus and their habits/attributes
  • Training of plant shapes
  • Care and maintenance
  • Tools and maintenance
  • Design and shaping

We also have a yearly course at Missendan Abbey
