This is the garden of our friend and topiary mentor Charlotte Moelsworth.
To read more about it you can buy a copy of Country Living Magazine (December 2017 edition) and see the amazing photographs of the garden on an icy, cold morning.

Or you can check out more about Charlotte Molesworth here.
If you do get to see the Country Living Magazine, and it inspires you to have yourself a little topiary in the garden – contact us to arrange a visit.

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.
