Steephill, thank you for that link. I think the wine may have a pectin haze. I will be doing the test tomorrow

Recommendations for a 9ft high living, thin, hedge near a house

FG I agree, it is the neighbour's responsibility to provide themselves with a blind, is it a window in the roof of a bathroom?

Perhaps some trellis on top of the fence with a clematis/honeysuckle/Mermaid rose/ growing up it.

Hi Nut, I think it is called 'finings', but the problem is not just the cloudy quality but the thickness of the liquid.

Very specific hedge plant requirements

Privet is pretty forgiving and it comes in a either a green or golden form and possibly a variegated version also.

There is a fantastic website that is dedicated to just hedging material. Try googling hedges.

GWRS, it has been there since August. I have made pear wine before and not had this problem. I am wondering if I should add water and some more sugar?

Here in the Fens, I have the Apricot in the lean-to g/h. As far as I understand, apricots flower quite early and there is a danger that frost will kill the blossom. Hence a g/h with a frost buster. This also means pollinating with a small soft brush; this year I had about 40 apricots
