From Lois Frampton: Topiaries can be loose or tight in the style of Martha Stewart. They may or may not have greens. They are not symmetric; but they are balanced from all angles. There are several types of mechanics that can be used. The easiest is a candlestick which is at least 15" high. Lois will lead a workshop in topiary arranging on March 1, 2012 at Friendly Crossways. Contact Lois for more information. Lois' contact information is in the Garden Club yearbook.
