THE MODERN MINT BLOG
For fresh cut flowers straight from the British countryside (see the vase in the picture above) please speak to the good people at Flowers from the Farm. They are a network of growers and farmers who are trying to put seasonal flowers back into the thoughts of the British public.
We love what they are doing and urge you to support them! Go check them out now!
(Or at least grow your own, just like we did in the picture above…)
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.
