Many know of my passion for For Kyle's Sept blog PNGtopiary – the ancient art of meticulous pruning and training of plants into shapes. It has been a hobby of mine for many years. I love spending time with my own personal collection of topiary trees. One I’ve had for almost 18 years! Needless to say I get very attached. At Earth Garden we have quite an amazing collection of myrtle standards that you must come in and see – perfection! You may find you can’t resist taking one home for your own! “Are they easy to take care of?” is a question we get asked a lot. Well …… I wouldn’t exactly say easy but I’d be happy to teach you what I know about their care. Basically, never let them dry out – ever. A sunny window. Cool air. And frequent trims along with a nice bath. There. Now that’s not so hard. If you can keep them going they’re very rewarding. And by the way – have you seen the new Anthropologie catalog? They’ve used myrtle topiaries throughout in their staging. Very chic and on trend! Come buy yours at Earth Garden today!

Happy pruning,
