Quite the contrary! Every time I see your name I think of Wimbledon and some wonderful tennis matches - for me your name's an amalgam of Billie Jean King and Tracy Austin - wonderful

I'll take the wall down in 50yrs when the tree is mature and repost a photo then. Any advice on the leaf problem. The nursery have today suggested a possible potassium deficiency.

Glad you're planning ahead Pauly3
The leaf problem looks more fungal to me.
This should help http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/garden-diy/how-to-make-an-alpine-trough/4.html
Just one of the organisations running courses http://www.hedgelaying.org.uk/
There are different techniques/styles that vary from area to area, taking into account suitability for different stock and different hedging plants.
Not sure that would solve the problem - honeysuckle needs a cool deep and moist rootrun, that means several feet deep.
Put a soaker hose on your list for Father Christmas - in the meantime a large bucket full of water three times a week until mid October, whether it rains or not, should help - but the main problem is that it's not really the right place for a honeysuckle
Lots and lots of hedge-laying courses available at agricultural colleges and other places all over the UK.
The mulberry tree at my old college covers an area with a diameter of around 20ft.
Lesley - enjoy your holiday
Good morning the rest of you - anyone need anything from Waitrose?

... Debcon said:"When I bought the land, 2011, as part of the contract I had to erect a stock proof fence... I then planted a hawthorn hedge on my side of the fence. I then needed to cover the face of the fence with chicken wire as the sheep were poking their noses through and eating the whips. Things were ok until the hedge grew above the fence line, the sheep now stand on their hind legs with their front hoofs resting on the fence and lean across and eat the hedging. Hence me being interested in whose responsibility it is. I have been told by a local landowner that the responsibility lies with my neighbour and not me but I need that in law rather than an opinion." However when it comes to sheep and Debcon's "problem" that's an entirely different matter. From her own words she's legally responsible. I don't even understand why she's asking the forum. It was in the contract for sale. ...

Exactly - just what I was trying to say, but you said it more succinctly
It appears that the farmer sold the land with the proviso that the purchaser erected (and presumably maintains) a stockproof fence so that he doesn't have to. Presumably the previous boundary had been sufficiently stockproof and selling a piece of land so that Debcon could extend his/her garden was more of a favour to Debcon rather than a commercial venture and there was no reason why the farmer should be put to the additional expense of fencing.
All the farmer needs is for the stock-proof fence to contain the animals. If Debcon wants the fence to prevent the animals from nibbling his/her hedge then he/she has to erect a fence that will do just that.
I hope that Debcon was advised to get Planning Permission for the change of use of the land http://www.planning-applications.co.uk/doineed.htm
