Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Topiary and the Art of Training Plants aims to demystify the practice of sculpting plants and hedging and instil confidence in amateur gardeners who are keen to develop this art. David Joyce is an experienced garden writer and planting adviser who, as the co-author of The Royal Horticultural Society Pruning and Training Manual, is well qualified to make this difficult skill accessible.

The book offers guidance on three main types of topiary: plants as sculpture, plants as architecture and patterned planting. It also includes a well-written and informative introduction that gives the enthusiast an interesting historical perspective on the growth of the art form.

Common and unusual forms of topiary are clearly explained, with simple-to-follow steps--for example, how to shape a box ball. Furthermore Joyce points out the pros and cons of using particular plants, such as the disadvantages of fast-growing privets and the graphic geometry of rare deciduous topiary like hawthorn. The range covered is extremely comprehensive and includes simple shapes on stems, animal shapes and standardised flowering or fruiting plants, as well as more complex fantasy sculptures.

The "Plants as Architecture" section includes tips on planting formal hedges and how to early train common hedging plants to create arches and decorative effects such as Yew Buttress with a Tulip Finial. For the more ambitious landscaper, there is even a dramatic Art Deco garden. Joyce provides a detailed directory of plants and shrubs, their characteristics and how they will grow. He also recommends public gardens to visit throughout Europe.

Joyce's instructions are all delicately illustrated by Laura Stoddart and are accompanied by impressive photography that makes this is an extremely attractive and useful guide to the art of topiary. --Karen Homer

Pressestimmen

Seductively illustrated and photographed book is full of clever ideas for adding geometry and structure to the garden. -- Valerie Easton "Seattle Times/Post Intelligencer" (09/10/2000)

Einleitungssatz
The shaping of bushes by browsing animals perhaps provides a clue to the original inspiration for topiary. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

As someone who loves the structure of formal gardens and wanting to try to create one on a small scale in my yard, I was very pleased with David Joyce's Topiary and the Art of Training Plants. He assumes his reader has some knowledge of the basics of growing plants, although he does give very general information on preparing beds for topiary plants. The book has sections on the causes and some solutions for established topiary in decline and how to correct a neglected and overgrown hedge. The book explains how to create some shapes in topiary along with step by step illustrations. Regarding hedges, it tells when and how to train widely used hedging plants. The book even relates how to grow pleached screens - training trees with flexible branches. There are sections on creating knot gardens, mazes, and climbers used as screens and canopies. The book gives a directory of a selection of plants for topiary and hedges, along with information on the hardiness, growth, size, maintenance, propagation and problems of these plants. It also lists sources to obtain plants and tools. The book is full of color pictures which will inspire plenty of ideas. It will be a great reference as I design and maintain my own topiary.

Useful & Has Depth 26. Dezember 2004
Von StacyD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

David Joyce's book on topiary is well-designed to interest the beginning topiarist, along with those who are more experienced. I've had this book for several years now and I learn something from it every time I refer to it.

I recently used it to try (hack?) my first topiary -- a boxwood bird. Joyce offers dimensions (such as plant size, and height at which to begin cutting), which I imagine would be helpful to those who appreciate precise directions. There are also large and detailed images of different types of topiary, along with sections on espalier and the like. This is a valuable reference in my garden library.
