THE MODERN MINT BLOG
Balmoral Cottage is open! The Yellow Book is back for 2019!
My mentor Charlotte Molesworth is opening her garden on several days through April, May and September. And you should definitely go see it! It is amazing!
The garden is full of topiary and plant treasures. You can see some of the photos here from an article in the Guardian.
If you see me there (and you likely will, as I’ll be clipping!) come and say hi!
I was asked by the European Boxwood & Topiary Society to help out with answering a common question – How to sharpen your shears? So we spent a fun day making a video, that hopefully will help you make sure you have sharp, shiny blades to do your topiary pruning with. And you can find here more examples of the topiary I make with my sharp blades.
You can get a ticket for this new talk I’m giving at the European Boxwood And Topiary Society here – TALK TICKETS It is on the 25th August at 6pm. It should be great fun and I’m very excited to be sharing some recent thoughts about topiary with people – and how it might work in a modern garden.
