laurel hedging

Posted: 30/01/2014 at 10:53
Hi Ian, good luck with the laurel,weve got it all around our garden up to 10/12 feet on one side,its a very neighbourly hedge all our neighbours have it and looks so good all year round, and cuttings so easy and cheap to do,i,ll be giving loads away this year coming , and they make a very good garden screen if required,our compost corner is going to be surrounded by it soon, good luck .

Cats in Gardens

just for your info Jessica the original poster in fact has been in touch with me we spoke yesterday about the program the BBC want to make about this cat problem,the team are collecting peoples opinions on the subject,anyone wishing to air there views can contact her in her first post,i do agree with Clarington that we must put our views in a reasonable fashion and not insult or sound threatening or harsh,but to drop the subject i think not as too many people have a genuine problem and have the same right to air there views,without discussion problems do not get understood or maybe even solved,so anyone who does have a view may want to get in touch with Jessica, as she is genuine.
