Hawthorn Hedge: at the end of its life?

Posted: 24/04/2016 at 10:45
There are hawthorn hedges in existence that started out in Medieval times, but they do benefit from cutting hard back from time to time, or 'laying' in the traditional way. Google will show you lots of examples, I'm on my phone at the moment so links are difficult

Slugs have had a munch of a clump of daffs here, although they've left others alone.

Plant ID please

I grow it as red veined sorrel - we eat it in soups etc as with other sorrel.

Aym, how big is your garden? What do you do with all the plants you propagate? Do you plant them in your garden? Or in friends' gardens?

Hi Ambar . What sort are your plants? Are the ones in the straw strawberries? The others look a bit like citrus ? I tried to zoom in on the label but it's too blurry.
Tell us more about your garden. Whereabouts are you?
