We have a Topiary pig called Percy and his legs are going brown, he was a birthday present last year for my other half and as yet we have not fed him (Percy not other half) what should we be using please any ideas.



Millie i don't know the reason why his legs are going brown but he sounds delightful. Please can you add a photo to your question? For most shrubs a geberal fertilize such as Growmore, vitax, ioracle grow etc can be used if necessary.

You can add one to your photo page easily though.
Having thought about this a bit more, and guessing its made of box, the very bottom will tend to go bare won't it - don't know how you can prevent it. But you can always say he has brown trotters...
Or grow something low growing underneath that will conceal his feet.
