Cant wait,cheers Robin
Montyyyyyyyyy! Looking forward to all the changes he's made over winter and the plans for this year
The only problem is..when i see all Montys hedging it'll set me off wanting some again
Yup, me too. I've now got a small row of box taken from cuttings. It's so slow!! I was going to border lot with this but a new idea has to be had I think - I just don't have the patience
Patience isn't my strong point either....i've been waiting for what seems like an age for my Buxus to grow....i'm now thinking of Lonicera Pileata...faster growing and without the risk of blight.I bet a pound to a pinch of chiffon after waiting all this time for the Buxus to grow it'll get struck down with blight...
Box is Low and Slow. if you want a Low hedge then ... you need Slow . Leylandii you'd be cutting every day to make it Low Planting bigger, more expensive plants, is your only way around that, but they tend to sit around and do nothing after planting - fine if they are Fully Formed, not so good if they are 75% grown. £200 a metre will buy you a ready-to-enjoy hedge. Or, slightly cheaper, you could just carpet the whole garden with best quality Wilton or Axeminster!
I'll get some
Do you need some Hedging Loli? I've not planted any this year - I think we are "done" for hedges Bought a few more Limes-to-Pleach though ... might that be an idea for you perhaps?
I'm thinking more lonicera ntida. Similar
I'd love pleached Limes...unfortunately i haven't got a garden that would give them the justice they deserve....they really are fabulous trees though
Can't put them along your boundary (in an existing hedge for example)?
No it's already pretty much screened off Kristen and would block the light i'm afraid.....besides i want an 'Avenue'..... Anyway stop encouraging me i'm still in a quandary as to where i'm going to put my 'Silver shadow' because of you
