Good morning all. Gloomy looking day, but sun in a couple of days time, hopefully.
RB, I haven't got an ipad so sorry, can't help.
Tetley's mixed hedge is my favourite sort too, that's what my daughter planted, but to look it's best it needs a to be a good length to get the varieties in and I don't know how much room Nicky Nash has.
RB, I copied and pasted the url into the oak tree icon for sending photos, using the external site choice.
Where's OL, Yviestevie? Have I missed her?
My son planted an Elaeagnus hedge which is evergreen and has done very well, can't see through it. There are variegated ones too. I have one called Gilt Edge, but not as a hedge.
You can buy cheap compost to improve the soil. Or ask a farmer or riding stables if they have any well rotted manure.
The leaves in bags need to be moist to rot, with air holes punched in the bags with a fork, but it takes about a year.
Trying to insert tongue smiley - ooh think it worked. http://yoursmiles.org/s-tongue.php used the oak tree, is there a better way?
Mine goes by an overhead cable to the garage from March. OH takes it down in winter. Gets in the farmer's way when he delivers hay.
Flore Pleno is the double one, which is what it looks like. https://www.rhs.org.uk/Plants/197933/Galanthus-nivalis-f-pleniflorus-Flore-Pleno-(d)/Details
