I'm on a roll cleaning out my summer pots and I hate to trash perfectly good plants, so...
along with the paperwhites I planted.
No window boxes with ivy?? No worries, you can always purchase an ivy plant.
They're available at Home Depot for about $10-15, which may sound a little
pricey, but if you were to buy a topiary this size it would run $20-$40 each.
These are large - wine bottle for perspective!
~ Removed from window box, replant in a decorative pot
~ Place topiary form into the soil
~ Starting at the bottom wind ivy vines around the stem of the form
~ Removing leaves until you reach the base of the ball
~ Continue winding vines around and over the form
~ If you like you can leave a small section to trail over the pot, eventually.
This one needs to fill in a little more, to cover the form....it won't be long.
All shapes and sizes of forms can be purchased from a nursrey.
Instead of purchasing a round form I made mine from a hanger.
Secure the wire in a vice and use pliers to form the shape.Leave a good amount of wire at the bottom to be inserted into the potting soil.
