Training and shaping trees and shrubs with a little added imagination.
Having fun in the garden is the best way to describe ‘creative pruning’, the great thing is that there are no rules. Take some time to think of the overall shape and configuration you are looking for. Take your inspiration from any source another garden, feature in a house or something completely random like a rock formation you saw on holiday. Within reason and with a little time and thought, most shapes and forms can be achieved. The natural growth habit of the plant will also dictate what is possible but there are some tricks that can be applied to deceive the human eye! The art of creative pruning has been taken to a different level by Jake Hobson at Niwaki and James Todman.
