I would like to grow my wife a greyhound topiary, I am wanting to grow a plant through a metal frame. But I am running into a few problems. The frame is 92cm x 114cm x 27cm and will be planted into the ground in full sunlight. (UK Midlands) The first problem is what plant to use. I do not want to use moss. I have looked into Box, Yew, Pyracantha and Privet but have no experience on what would be best growing through the frame, Im not too fussed how long it would take to grow. But I do have lots of time to prune it so a faster growing variety would be better. The second problem is where do you grow the plant into the frame? Do i get 4 plants and and grow each leg? Or one leg and grow down the others? Or do I grow through the middle of the frame and grow down all 4 legs? and keep the main steam woody. Any help would be appreciated, Thank you in advance.
