Pike Nurseries: Fall pumpkin topiary

Posted: Updated:

Pumpkin topiaries are gaining popularity, and it's no wonder! They are perfect for front entries, and they add instant festive fun without the fuss.  Melodie McDanal from Pike Nurseries joined Good Day to tell us more.

Why a Pumpkin Topiary
Very decorative, and stacking the pumpkins makes a big statement
Create a pumpkin topiary now and it will last throughout the autumn season
Play with different size pumpkins to create a topiary to fit your space and décor style

How to Create a Pumpkin Topiary

Choose 2 or more pumpkins in varying sizes that are somewhat flat on the top
Get a pot that is slightly smaller in diameter than your largest pumpkin
Remove the stems of all heirloom pumpkins
Rest the largest pumpkin on the rim of the pot and stack the next smallest on top continuing to stack the pumpkins.
To add stability to the pumpkin topiary, drive a short wooden dowel that is sharpened on both ends through the stack of heirloom pumpkins by hammering it with a mallet. Leave a bit of the top of the sharpened dowel exposed.
Place the smallest pumpkin on the stack pushing it down onto the dowel.
Add Spanish moss in any gaps between the pumpkins.
