Add form and structure to your garden with topiary. Grown in containers, they make attractive portable additions to use wherever needed - to fill an empty gap, to bring cohesion to a collection of pots, to add formality to a doorstep. But topiary is not cheap. The price reflects the years of care, cultivation and training involved in this centuries-old art to develop balls, pyramids, pom-poms and standards from box and other small-leaved shrubs. This attractive guide to container topiary by garden writer Susan Berry shows how this time and cost can be cut by using other, quicker-growing plants or by buying larger shrubs and training them yourself. Beautifully illustrated with the photographs of award-winning photographer Steven Wooster, this is a visual feast of topiary inspiration. From painted pots to lead planters, topiaried animals and birds, cultivation and display advice, Susan Berry covers every aspect of growing plants in this attractive, clever way. - Lucy Watson
