I am now making bear topiary and selling them on E-bay I thinking of getting in to selling the plant with the bear topiary what would be the best plant I can use for that and do I start with a new little plant or can I get a big one and wrap it in string like a Christmas tree and put the topiary I made over it and cut the string and fill in the legs, arms and head.

Hedera helix, or English Ivy is the "standard" topiary plant. Best to start with young plants and let them grow over the frame for one season. English Ivy will cover a medium size topiary frame in one season, so you could start them in Spring and sell them in Fall and if you have enough started, sell the leftover next Spring. Rinse and Repeat. Also, English Ivy is very easy to root so you can buy a few plants for cutting material, grow them in a suitable place on your premises and cut and root your own plants. Will keep your overhead lower by doing it this way. Vary and be creative. That's where you make the best money on ebay.
