I've wrestled with the thought of starting a planted topiary of a dog. Personally, I'd like to see us have a forum of that nature. I've been on other websites where this area doesn't get much feedback. I'd love to have someone to chart with over the course of my efforts. There are some good pictures out there, but somewhat few and far between. Then I lucked upon "Arborsclupture" and found quite a bit of photos. But, it doesn't help me too much with my smaller project.

I was planning on taking progressive photos and wanted to post them. Just not sure where I could do this here. I've got a lot of ideas that I'd gladly pass along to other venturous gardeners.

Would anyone else be interested in a forum of this nature or have any suggestions for me?

Well, you said:

So chance are it probably wouldn't get enough discussion here to justify an entire forum. I think of Topiary as something you see at Botanical Gardens not something you see much of in the average home gardens. But would still be an interesting topic and I'm sure others would love to see what you are doing, so by all means post your photos and information you have. The All Things Gardening Forum would be a good place.

I agree. I'd love to see your progress and that forum would be a good place for your posts and photos. They are rare in home gardens, but they do look like fun if you like to do lots of hands on trimming.

I agree that if you simply start a thread with an appropriate title "Topiary...something or other" that folks who share your interest will follow it. Great way to share ideas.

I agree. A "Topiary" thread in the All Things Gardening Forum would be a good thing. Thumbs up
