Hedge problem

Posted: 05/09/2014 at 16:44

As others have said, cut it back even further than you dare!  Then clear out any rubbish from the base and in February give it a good sprinkling of Fish, Blood & Bone.  You'll have a lovely hedge by next summer.

When you trim the hedge, try to trim it to an A shape, wider at the base than the top.  You'll get a hedge which is green from top to bottom that way

Nut's right - plant them out now.  Don't panic when they disappear over the winter; they'll reappear in the spring

No more than any other ants - they can undermine the roots in dry weather - this may be of help http://www.antnest.co.uk/species.html
