HELLO FORKERS!

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.

New hedge

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.

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.

how to bulk up soil?

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.

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.
