Is there a safe green paint that can be used on a topiary until the vine covers the surface?
I would think any paint would be suitable unless you plan on consuming the vine. If outdoors, use an outdoor paint. Once the paint is dry, the plant won't care.
I have topiary trees outside. Leaves are brown. Should I cut them off?
Please expand the question. Please include details...what kind of tree, are the trees inside or outside, how many leaves (percentage) are brown, do the leaves have brown edges or is the whole leaf brown, has the tree had sufficient water, light and nutrition. Need more information.
I purchased a topiary for the front flower bed that receives full sun about a year ago. The topiary started to show brown leaves on the upper levels, which is now traveling further down the plant. I have tried dusting it with pesticides. I've fertilized it, and nothing seems to be working. What should I do?
Need more information.
What plant is it?
How long after purchase did you notice symptoms?
Is it in a container or planted into the ground?
How much and how often does it get water?
Have you seen pests?
Have you contacted the seller?
I have a 4 ft flamingo topiary covered with moss and pink sedum. It is cute! What should I do for winter care? Put in basement? Water well and cover up outside? I really don't have space in my garden room.
I think that it would have a better chance outdoors than in the basement. Place it near the foundation of your house and then cover the base with leaves or straw and then wrap the entire thing in burlap or an old blanket. Do not use plastic. I can't guarantee it will survive, but this will give it the best chance.
I am planning to prune an 8 foot upright cedar into a topiary shaped with 3 balls. The trunk of the cedar will be bare between the balls. Should I treat the bare trunk areas (i e. with varnish) to inhibit regrowth or just trim off any new growth? Thank you.
Just trim any new growth. Sealing the trunk can result in trapping disease and fungus against the step, which could kill the tree.
I'm new to gardening. My box topiary has white blossoms all over. Should I cut this off as soon as it appears or wait for it to die down before cutting? Thank you.
Wait, flowering allows for new growth. Heres an article about pruning boxwoods;
It appears that some vandal sprayed the front of My Topiary tree with something that gradually killed the entire tree. At first it was just the front but gradually the whole tree turned brown and is dead or dying. Is there anywhere I can take it to find out what was sprayed on it?
