The Specialist Buyers Guide for Professionals in The Landscape Industry

Crown Topiary

Crown Topiary is the largest specialist topiary nursery in the UK

We're a family run business that has been built on quality, service and attention to detail. We take pride in supplying topiary, both large and small, that has been hand cut, tended and trimmed to achieve the best possible, long lasting results... oh, and we have been trading since 1982, so we know a thing or two about shaped trees and shrubs! 

Our two acre nursery has lots of topiary specimens ready for delivery anywhere in the UK or Ireland. This extensive portfolio of stock and wide choice of plant varieties enables the creation of ‘instant gardens’, with the use of pre-prepared instant topiary hedging, cloud formed hedging, topiary box head, screening pleached trees or stunning topiary arches and parasol trees in various sizes... but if you want that special individual piece, we stock a range of good quality traditional topiary plants for you to choose from.

More traditional topiary forms such as cones & pyramids, balls, half-standards, cubes and spirals, make great features in a garden, along a driveway or path and look amazing in pots or planters. For that something different and modern, we also stock a range of beautiful cloud forms in a variety of species and the more artistic and unique animal, bird and life form shapes.

Topiary Arches

We make most of our topiary arches in the nursery. We train them around a galvanised steel framework which remains on the tree for the first few years after planting. For easy planting and transport, the framework comes apart at the apex.

We have in stock and can supply topiary arches in:

  • Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) 
  • Yew (Taxus baccata) 
  • Star Jasmine (Trachelospernum jasminoides) 

Topiary Boxhead Trees

You can use our Boxhead trees as hedges on stilts, instant screening or signature pieces to compliment your garden. We supply our trees with a clear stem of between 1.80 and 2.20 metres and a girth size of 18cm plus. When available, our shorter clear stem trees are in Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus).

Depending on the age of the tree, we can supply the cubes on top in different sizes - the older the tree, the larger the pre-prepared cube. We have Boxhead pleached trees in:

  • Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus)
  • Lime (Tilia varieties)
  • Beech (Fagus sylvatica)
