Gardening expert Andrew Beckman shows how to fashion an ivy topiary. It's best to use hanging-basket plants that have long stems.
What You'll Need:
Gather ivy stems, and carefully feed them through the topiary form; for flat forms like the circle, this step isn't necessary.
Push the stakes as far as possible into soil.
Divide stems according to the form. (Andrew made 4 groups, 1 for each obelisk leg. For flat forms, make 2 groups.)
