Agrumi Bespoke Topiary Logo

Manchester Flower Festival

The Manchester Flower Festival is an integral part of this exciting city, many important landmarks and streets are enhanced with blooming flowers and vibrant colours.

The festival is always popular in Manchester, even more so with it being the first big event of 2021… and it didn’t disappoint!

Topiary Elephant and Giraffe, made with artificial grass

Agrumi designed and created an artificial baby giraffe and elephant to be placed in Angel Meadow Park. The topiary were within budget, required no maintenance and provided an Instagramable opportunity for visitors to the event.

Flowers were planted around the bases of the sculptures, which helped to ground and enhance them visually

The pictures that were shared on social media platforms were a huge hit and really became a stand out feature within the city.

We at Agrumi love to be part of such events and create topiary features that stand out for others to enjoy.

Could your town benefit from some topiary sculptures? Just get in touch!

Agrumi have created a metal sculptures range created especially by their head topiary artist, Luigi Frosini. These mainly include British animals such as Roe deer, Sheep, Hares and Pigs. Inspired by the natural world around him, Luigi endeavours to create lifelike animal sculptures.

A while ago, Burford Art Gallery approached Agrumi about making a Metal Horse for a display. (Burford Art Gallery is part of Burford Garden company, an Oxfordshire based Garden shop. They ‘love things that are a little different', so we think we’re a great match!)

This enquiry soon evolved into a series of regular orders of animal sculptures, and now Agrumi has an entire range based on these Metal Animal Sculptures by Luigi Frosini.

Metal Piglets

Having worked closely with nature, Luigi can create realistic 3D forms made of steel, whilst capturing the personality of each animal and character perfectly.

Metal Ram Sculpture

These are made from annealed steel wire, which naturally turns a rusty brown colour when left outside. We are able to add a lacquer coating, or paint to the sculpture, to help prevent oxidisation, if you prefer this finish.

A selection of these was exhibited at The Chelsea Flower Show 2021, as part of Agrumi’s New Forest exhibition stand.

These are all available to buy from Burford Art Gallery, we can take commisions for custom orders, or you can buy them online from our webshop TopTopiary.

Radley dog in artificial topiary.

Radley is a British company that values good design and quality. Its beautiful handbags, purses and accessories have become world famous, as has its little Scottie dog logo. ‘Radley’ the dog embodies the company’s respect for British humour and eccentricity and features on all its products.

To celebrate the re-launch of their flagship store in Covent Garden, Radley asked Agrumi to make their adorable logo larger than life in a giant topiary ‘pop-up’ to feature in the Piazza.

Although the piece could have been made with living plants, Radley chose to use artificial boxwood matting. The product Agrumi uses has deep ‘foliage’ and tonal shades of green, which replicate the real thing very well.

This light, sturdy, UV fade-protected and weather-resistant material requires no on-going care and is the perfect choice for clients wanting items they can transport and use over and over again for indoor and outdoor events and exhibitions. After appearing in Covent Garden, Radley took their topiary dog on a countrywide promotional tour.

ITV Love your Garden
Last summer Agrumi was commissioned by ITV’s hugely successful, long-running show ‘Love Your Garden’ to create a topiary giraffe for client Joan Myers. Every week while the show is on its fantastic team of expert gardeners is challenged to build a new garden for deserving people like Joan.

ITVJoan has devoted her life to paediatric nursing in the NHS and helping children in Africa. In 2013 she was awarded the OBE for Outstanding Services to Nursing and named as one of this country’s top 50 Inspirational Leaders in Healthcare. Her commitment to nursing meant however that her garden was sadly neglected.

When the ‘Love Your Garden’ team offered to help, Joan said she would like a beautiful, tranquil space in which to reflect, pray and entertain; requesting a topiary giraffe to remind her of Africa.

ITV came to Agrumi for the topiary and we were only too pleased to oblige.
