topiary

I love this illustration I did a few years ago for Sur La Mer.  If you have the time, take a hop over to Melissa's sophisticated and chic site.  My herb garden has been planted and I would love to add some topiaries to my back patio.  Do you have a topiary?  I am thinking rosemary might be nice.

An herb garden sounds wonderful, as does a rosemary topiary. I have a pot of mint that I go to for tea.

I've been through a lot of topiary in my days! They usually have a very sudden demise. I've made many small rosemary ones because I cook with rosemary a lot. I just use the leaves from the bottom of a long stem and keep some at the top. Put them in water and they'll grow roots in a just a few weeks. Then pot them up, pinch the tops and watch them grow. you just keep pinching the new branch shoots to get it bushy. And don't forget to water.

Oh, I love the way a topiary looks... sadly, I have a brown thumb, so must admire them from afar.

Such a happy illustration. Congrats for getting your herbs planted - I need to do the same. I just ordered boxwood topiary for the planters on our front porch - can't wait for them to arrive!

Love your illustration! I wish I had a topiary but they die at the end of the season around here and I hate killing things. They don't like our home in the winter time it's to dry so I'll have to admire from afar.

I LOVE topiaries! Like plant sculpture! Rosemary would be great. Cut a few sprigs and bump up the flavor of chicken or oven roasted potatoes...

I've tried keeping rosemary in my house and it just keeps dying! Yet somehow I dont learn my lession because I keep buying more of it to see if I can get it to live longer than a few weeks at a time :)

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
