Poor Hedging growth

Maybe a photo of the hedge and the surrounding area would give us some ideas

how deep rooting are courgettes?

I agree with KEF The depth of those beds will be fine for courgettes and peas, but I wouldn't put sweetcorn there.  In my experience they need firmer soil than a raised bed will usually provide.  They are also very thirsty so I find they're best planted in the soil rather than a raised bed.

That'll have ruined his cutter blade if he didn't walk the field and check it first

Gosh Dove you were brave putting washing out!

I was even braver getting it back in - it was tipping down with rain

I put some washing out on the line 'cos it's fairly sheltered in the back garden, but it didn't stay there long - we've got it back indoors now

Fingers crossed!  A few days of sunshine will make a remarkable difference

And I was right - your name is relevant

No, you've got that wrong too Verdun - that won't be until the 17th - a bit of a while to wait but apparently there's a backlog and Easter is in the way!

Never mind - it's reassuring to know that even Poldark can have a senior moment

No sign of Hefty yet, but he's usually later than I think he will be.  I find that the first sign of hedgehogs waking around here are one or two squidged ones on the main road and I noticed yesterday that there wasn't a single one between here and Southwold, so maybe the East Anglian ones aren't awake yet.
