The European Boxwood & Topiary Society (EBTS UK)

Welcome to the European and Boxwood Topiary Society (EBTS UK). We’re a diverse group of members who are dedicated to encouraging the appreciation, cultivation and knowledge of Boxwood and Topiary and further extending its historic and scientific research.

Our members range from garden historians, designers and scientists to anyone with an interest in gardens. EBTS UK also forms part of a larger European body, with active membership in France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, the US and Japan.

Once you join EBTS UK, you’ll gain access to exclusive garden visits to some of the top boxwood and topiary gardens around the country and abroad. Plus you can sign up for our talks and events which inspire people to try their hand at topiary, whatever size their garden or balcony might be.

All members receive our annual magazine Topiarus, packed with articles on historic and modern topiary garden design and research on boxwood pests and diseases, while our newsletters and website will also keep you up to date on the latest news, top tips and events.
