    Topiary - a kind of living image. Wire forms of animals, objects people, even letter signs. You place the frame where you want it around a suitable bush (such as Boxwood) or plant a vine (such as English Ivy or Baby tear) and it grows to that shape. Ivy is the quickest plant for results.

    I think this would be easy to market.

    That is very cool! Have you seen many of these around your area?

    What made you think of it?

      I've seen only one - a Teddy Bear.

      One of my new customer's from the hospital asked about them.

      Mother hen won't let me do anything and I have to be doing something or go crazy so, I am researching it. Have found a number of suppliers, techniques, and ideas.

        I bet this is the kind of product that if one was used in a high traffic area, many people would start wanting them.

          High traffic areas

          I bet this is the kind of product that if one was used in a high traffic area, many people would start wanting them.
          I am contemplating making up a few and placing them at a few high traffic areas with a sign oir plack directing interested people to me.

          The wire frames come from 6" to 6', can be indoor and/or outdoor potted plants, outdoor perminant plants for sun or shade conditions.

          Making these is something my wife would enjoy doing also!

              Would this be something that would be worthwhile to install at a local school or library?

              Can you image maybe a big book for a library?

              Or a parent holding a child's hand for a school?

              This could get you a lot of media attention too.

              What about a soldier for a local vfw?

                pre made shapes

                They have just about every animal there is (domestic, farm exotic).

                They have one of a golfer putting and a baseball player.

                No books,no soldiers.

                All good ideas but not available and I don't feel able to produce them myself.

                This is the Bible Belt. Sometimes you have to drive as many as 2 blocks to find a church! A cross might be a big seller that would not be difficult to manufacture (all straight lines). Spmething to think about!

                  That is a great idea! I bet it would be fun to try and experiment with.
