Easy Ivy Topiary
Twist and twirl English ivy around a simple wire form for a living sculpture you can make in less than an hour.
Use easy-to-grow English ivy (Hedera helix) to make an attention-grabbing topiary for your home.
What You'll Need:
•Heavy container, such as terra-cotta or stone
•Saucer for the pot (optional)
•1 (2-quart) bag potting soil
•Handful of time-release fertilizer
•1 (6-inch) potted ivy or 2 (4-inch) potted ivies (Look for ones with long trailing stems.)
•Topiary form or wire frame
•Rafia (best because it stretches with plant and will break when ivy is too big) or string
