Trimming Hedges (Leylandii?)

Posted: 18/08/2015 at 16:00

I would trim it by the end of September - that will keep it neat, fresh and green. It's a good looking hedge now - if you left it until September next year it might grow quite a bit and that would mean you'd be cutting back quite hard and possibly into brown wood - that would spoil it.


Potential jam??

I went off gin after a youthful indiscretion  However, by dint of conscientious practise I managed to learn to like it again

They're probably not ready yet - a friend made, or tried to make, sloe gin a couple of years ago, but she picked the sloes before they were ripe and the resulting gin remained a pale pink and didn't have a lot of flavour.  I usually reckon to pick sloes in the UK in November.

Hello again, back from the GP practice - this time my BP was taken by the nurse the old fashioned way, and it was 'acceptable' - certainly a lot better than last time when it was soooooooo painful. 

You'll be fine Panda ((hugs)) Fingers very crossed
