Caring for your Topiary
In your quest to properly care for your Topiary, there are five main factors that warrant your careful consideration. These include watering, light, fertilizer, pests, and repotting. Each of these components is crucial to your success, so neglect none of them. Topiaries, for example, are particularly susceptible to pests, so make sure to continually watch after your plants and look for any indications that insects are present. Such pests can lead to deadly diseases. In addition to proper watering and light exposure, make sure to properly fertilize your topiary at least monthly while the plant is still growing, but refrain from doing so when it is stressed.

Caring for your Mossed Ivy Wreath
When properly maintained, a mossed ivy wreath is gorgeous. There are, however, some key steps in the process that will contribute to an effective and sustainable growth environment. This begins with the place of your wreath inside in a location that does not bear the brunt of the full afternoon sun. An outdoor location is acceptable, as long as it in a protected area, such on the front porch. In addition, make sure that your wreath receives water when it is dry, but do not overwater nor allow it to remain overly damp. A best practice is to rinse it under the sink over and over until moisture is evenly distributed throughout the wreath.
Caring for your Mossed Ivy Reindeer
It is important to water your mossed ivy reindeer as soon as it is dry, but do not allow too much water to bog it down. The moss itself retains a lot of water, but keep in mind that hot and dry conditions, that water will dry up quickly. A best practice is to mist the leaves and vines of the moss in between watering in order to keep unwanted pests and insects at bay. It is also important to lightly fertilize the moss on a periodic basis when it is still growing.
Caring for your Mossed Ivy Dog
To keep your mossed ivy dog looking great, proper watering is essential. Do not allow the moss to become to dry, but after watering, ensure that the moss is not left in a soggy condition. You should work to concentrate most of the watering within the body where the ivy itself actually originates. This will help it to retain it shape and keep it looking fresh and green at all times. As the moss begins to grow, make sure to trim back any undesirable areas and to pin back areas in order to cover any spots you do not want to have seen.
Caring for your Mossed Ivy Bear
Much of the beauty of a mossed ivy bear is that is can be displayed almost anywhere, but you want to make certain that you keep the soil in the pot water, particularly as soon as it turns dry. This is especially important if you are displaying the bear in a hot or dry location. During the watering process itself, make sure to remove the mossy bear from the pot, then work to pour roughly one cup of water directly on the soil. Let it drain through and then repeat the process, no allowing the water to drench the soil for more than 5 minutes at a time.
Caring for your Mossed Ivy Animals
A variety of looks are certainly possibly with mossed ivy animals, but these Topiaries do require special care in order to keep looking great. Remember that, while moss does hold a lot of water, it can dry out rather quickly when located in a hot or dry location. If you ivy animal is in a pot of soil, then watering the soil periodically (with the animal in the pot) is the way to go. Absent soil, however, opt to place it under a faucet or hose until the ivy is even moist all over.
Caring for your Lemon Cypress
Part of taking proper care of your lemon cypress involves repotting the plant once it has developed roots. To do this, consider moving the plant to a larger pot. At the same time, make sure that you provide just enough water to keep the plant healthy and looking and looking good. Too much or too little water could certainly prove to be detrimental. Pruning of the lemon cypress is also a necessity. In addition to these factors, remember to look out for pests, maintain proper fertilizing procedures, and ensure adequate lighting conditions. Doing each of these will go a long way towards keeping your lemon cypress looking great for some time to come.
Caring for your Ivy Kissing Ball
One of the primary considerations in keeping your ivy kissing ball healthy is to make sure it is located indoors in a bright location that does not receive the full brunt of the afternoon sun. The kissing ball can also flourish outside, as long it is in a protected area, such as under the balcony or front porch. If you do this, however, make sure to bring the Topiary inside if the weather falls below freezing outside. In addition to proper watering procedures, also work to trim off any excess growth to keep the ivy looking great and leaving undesirable spots unseen.
Caring for your Ivy Ball on Stem
The ivy ball on stem is a beautiful inside Topiary, but it does require proper care. This begins with watering procedures. It is recommended that you remove the ivy ball from its pot, and then water the soil directly with 1 cup of water, let the water expire for 5 minutes, then repeat. Keep any eye out for when the soil dries, as this indicates that watering is once again necessary. In addition, do not neglect the importance of fertilization during the growth stage. If the ivy is still actively growing, then lightly fertilize the Topiary at least once a month, all the while trimming back excessive growth as needed. This will keep your ivy looking great from some time to come.
Caring for your Euonymus Topiary
There are some special considerations to take into account when caring for a euonymus Topiary. To begin, remember that this particular responds better to watering if it is first allowed to dry out a bit. One can feel just below the soil surface to know when it is time to water. Then, take care to water directly on the surface of the soil until some of the water drains through to the bottom. It is important that you do not permit the plant to stand freely in water. In addition, remember to account for proper lighting, fertilize once a month while the Topiary is still growing, work to eliminate pesky insects, and repot and trim as needed.
Caring for your Angel Vine Topiary

A best practice, however, is to avoid placing the plant directly in front of a window faces either directly west or south. The afternoon sun might prove to be too much of a match in this case. Placing the Topiary outside in a protected area is also beneficial, but remember to move it back indoors if you suspect the temperature might dip below 40 degrees F. Finally, remember to fertilize on a regular basis, take care of pests, and repot and trim when needed to keep the plant looking great.
Caring for your Olive Tree

In addition, this particular Topiary likes to receive light when indoors, but it can handle low lighting conditions when needed for a week or so. Do not leave the plant outside when freezing, instead opting to move it indoors. It is important to fertilize the olive tree once a month while it is still growing, and to continually look for the presence of pesky insects that can result in deadly diseases. Finally, repot the plant into a bit of a larger pot once it begins to develop roots.
Caring for your Lavendar Plant
The lavendar plant needs to be watered regularly, but remember to let it dry out ever so slightly before doing so. In addition, this particular Topiary likes to receive light when indoors, but it can handle low lighting conditions when needed for a week or so.

Care for Mossed Ivy Topiary with no Pot
If you wish to keep your Topiary indoors, choose a spot with lots of natural light like near a north, south or east facing window. West facing windows tend to have too much direct afternoon sun so avoid placing your Topiary directly next to one. Artificial lights (e.g. lamps) do not provide enough light to keep Ivy alive unless the Topiary is placed within 2 feet of the bulb and it is illuminated for at least 10 hours per day every day.
