I began looking on-line and located this beautiful set of boxwood topiaries for a great worth of $129 for the pair. I learn the opinions which had been actually good and figured they’d work for my wants too. They do! Mine are the 24″ x 18″ medium measurement.

They got here packed in a field, so I took them out and fluffed the foliage. I additionally minimize off the lip of the plastic container they had been in since I didn’t need water to sit down in them.

They’re set in some kind of resin/plaster which ought to maintain them in place simply wonderful. I took out the previous crops that had been in my urns and left about 1/2 the filth in them. Then I merely positioned the brand new topiaries on prime of the flattened filth and lined them each with marble chips we had available.

And right here’s how they appear on our entrance porch. I like them a lot! I like that they appear very pure and they aren’t fully excellent, however have little tendrils of leaves popping up throughout. Simply fluff the leaves and pull the stems round to cowl any holes.

I lined the underside of the container fully with the marble chips and it finishes them off properly with no filth exhibiting.

The trunk seems to be very sensible too and they’re the proper accent for the porch and these urns. I’ll be so glad to not need to seasonally substitute these crops anymore. These fake boxwood ought to final for years. Simply needed to share in case you’ve bought planters are are uninterested in changing crops too! I’m all prepared for spring now!
