My wonderful friend, and amazing artist and sculptor, Wanda Balderstone has created a series of topiary animals that takes the stress out of all the snip, snip, snipping that usually accompanies intricate topiary. I now have a goose in my herb garden, a lavender cat on my garden table, an oregano duck in my borders and a box heart that became a Christmas gift. Unsurprisingly, she is now sold out but come the spring she will be taking orders on her topiary, sculpture and canvasses. I haven’t told her yet, but I might need some life-sized topiary sheep in my orchard…

Wanda’s studio will be online next year but I’m pretty certain you’ll be seeing plenty of her work right here.
