@gardeningfantic, I hope those hedges grow soonish, maybe all this rain and sun might speed up the process. I am still dabbling with the idea of hedging to enclose the rooms of my garden, I much prefer the elegance of a neat green backdrop to that of trellis, but trellis is instant!
It's a bit mean that hubby gets all of the back garden but then I suppose whatever piece of land we gardening folk acquire, its never going to be big enough
I feel lucky to have my not-so-little little patch even if I wish some parts were more established, overall I am happy with the design improvements I've made this year and the process will bring even greater satisfaction next year and that's the difference between ornamental and veg growing in my opinion.
Home grown veg is a treat at meal times but the ornamental garden is a passion to the senses that lasts from dawn to dusk! I just can't get enough of that
