About Me

James TodmanThank you for visiting my website. My name is James Todman. I have been working in horticulture for over 10 years and now specialise in topiary. I particularly enjoy the sculptural aspect of this gardening art form, favouring the organic and geometrical topiary designs.

I also treat topiary for common diseases such as box blight and can advise on dealing with problems like the box tree caterpillar or mussel scale.

Based near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire, my work takes me to beautiful locations all over the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey and London.

I have an interest in garden history, especially the formal designs of the eighteenth and nineteenth century. During this period parterres, knot gardens, topiary were all important elements of the formal garden design. I am a member of the European Boxwood and Topiary Society  and contribute to their annual magazine Topiarius.

I am PA1 and PA6 certified to apply commercial fungicidal treatments. I’m certified with the Environment Agency for the collection and movement of green waste under the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011. Registration No. CBDL119481
