Specialist pruning & topiary

This is an area of horticulture that fires my passion.

Anything from rejuvenating neglected shrubs, trees and climbers to the design and formation of topiary.

The Four Bishops

At the front of a Grade I listed medieval Somerset house which had formed part of the Bishop of Bath and Wells estate. Four yews had been planted and untouched, ready and waiting to be topiarised.  I wanted to give them a context to the house and its history and from this came the four bishops. Two of the yews have mitres from the 11th centuary and two have mitres from the present day.

This is the first year of pruning, stay posted to see their development.
