Finish Topiary and Trim
Working your way down, cover topiary form with bundled bunches of boxwood sprigs, leaving about 1-2 inches around the bottom uncovered. Pot topiary, and make sure all the foam is covered (Images 1 and 2). Add individual boxwood sprigs to any gaps, if necessary. Add a dab of hot glue to the bottom of the form to secure it in the pot if needed. Trim leaves with scissors to groom the topiary (Image 3). Keep out of intense, direct sunlight and mist with water every couple of weeks to keep leaves hydrated and looking their best (Image 4).
