The Q&A Archives: topiary

Question: How to make my rosemary plant into a tree form standard or topiary? Plant is approx. 15 inches high.

Answer: Start by clipping off all the stems and leaves along the lower part of the plant, leaving about 5 inches of top growth. Then prune the growth into a round shape. As the plant grows continue to remove the lowest branches and foliage, maintaining only the top and triming it to retain the round look. Enjoy your project!
