Cones might work, thanks for that idea.

Thanks, Sue. Yes, they do have a nice
furry finish.

No, it's scenic scatter. I think
Flower Soft might be too soft
to represent clipped leaves. Scatter
is a bit crispier. But a small bag of
scatter goes an awful long way,
don't know what I am going to do
with the rest of it.

They look really good.
You know, l purchased two resin ones for the doorstep of the Deyrolle building. l never thought to make them.
Will file your idea away for future reference as l'm sure l'll be needing some soon.
Thank you for posting them on here.

What great ideas for topiary Cathy and Elaine. Thanks for posting them. I need to make some for my garden shop.

Reminds me that I should trim the RL ones as they are looking a bit shaggy. Even though gardeners of old traditionally trimmed them on Derby day
