While roses may fall flat for most dads, one of our Rocket Farms topiaries could make a clever gift for the man that’s proud of his yard.
These are topiaries shaped using a wire frame onto which the plant is trained or grown in. Some are stuffed with sphagnum moss, whereas others are hollow or maybe filled with the trained plant.
Ivy topiary care is very easy. Ivy has a well deserved reputation for being tough to kill, so in turn topiaries made with it will be very hardy. It can thrive in a range of temperatures and light conditions. Just avoid overwatering or letting the roots sit in water. To water a topiary made with moss, just soak the moss in it or pour it on much like you would on potting medium. The trickiest part of topiary care is maintaining the shape, but thanks to the nature of 'new' or 'portable' topiary, you’ll always have a guide thanks to the wire frame. Just trim back the plant when it over grows its shape!
