Topiary has been used in the gardens of Europe since Roman times. It survived a popularity decline in the 1700’s and experienced a dramatic revival in the mid 19th century, from which it has not abated. In fact, Topiary today is more popular than ever and found in a huge number of British gardens from the smallest spheres to stately works of art that are often decades in the making.
At Kingsdown we have had the pleasure of being involved in supplying topiary to many fascinating projects and in the gallery pages you will get a glimpse of what is available to stir your imagination.
Along with mature hedging, large unusual topiary and feature plants are really what we are best at. We source these shapes from specialist growers all over Europe and availability and quality is checked before we quote for each item. There are rarely two enquiries alike for such diverse plants so each query is assessed and quoted for on an individual basis.
The list below shows some of the basic shapes currently available.
