I agree with raisingirl 100% 


Use nice tall posts as she has done, then if you find they are getting over the fence it'll be easier to put another strip of netting around the top than it would be to bury more if they were getting underneath.

Hi Topbird ... we watered everything yesterday .... that's a guarantee that we'll get a decent amount of rain tonight ....... I s'pose I could put the soaker hose on the Shady Bank, just to make sure .... 


F'edge ... OH beat me to it ... there's a load of dark clothes already churning around in the machine ...

I'm not sure that a 10 cm turn out at the base of the fence is enough - I would make the turn out at least 15 cm - probably 20.

It may help to reduce the size of the picture ... But as most of us are UK based we may not recognise your tree. 

Border plants in desert like conditions

I'm wondering about Sea buckthorn?  Apparently it's grown a lot in various parts of Asia, including China so may be available and ok for the climate.


What do folks think?
