How To Soak Water A Topiary

A good method of watering a topiary is by soaking it. The sphagnum moss is similar to a sponge. It will soak up water and hold it until time and environmental conditions allows it to evaporate. This soak allows for reduced watering frequency since it is a deep watering.


We use a container to hold the water. Depending on the topiary shape determines the size of the container needed.


Our Standing Mouse topiary works well with this plastic food storage container.

Adding a little water to the container and allowing the topiary to soak it all up makes it easy to water.
