Laurel Hedging Issues

Posted: 20/04/2017 at 12:19

I agree with Lyn .... reduce their height by half - you'll get a nice thick hedge from top to bottom that way, rather than thick at the top and bare stems at the bottom.

I think they just tow it around behind their brand new truck to show off - boys' toys etc

Mmmm  young men, tipper truck, shredder and Juniper Skyrockets have disappeared  ... climber remains propped up by back door ....... have the junipers been rejected by neighbours?  I did think they would look rather incongruous in their garden which is smaller than ours ...........

I've got some stuff to do out the front too Joyce .............. but I think I'd better get on with pricking out the tomatoes ... the stuff in the front will have to wait.

Tomatoes shouldn't be fed until the first truss of flowers has set fruit.

We don't have any curtains Joyce ................. large windows with wooden blinds a bit like these http://www.wooden-blinds-direct.co.uk/stores/product/premier_simply_natural_venetian_blind 


Uninterrupted view out but they can't see in - but if we're having any work done it's amazing how often their side garden needs weeding -  They're very nice tho' - we like them - always happy to take a parcel in etc.

Great excitement here on The Rise ... neighbours across and up a bit have three young men (20 if they're a day) in high vis jackets with a tripper truck and a shredder parked outside.  


They've just unloaded two Juniper Skyrocket type things, both about 10' tall, and a climber of some sort, about 8' tall.  They have been plied with hot drinks and biscuits by Mrs Neighbour.  


One young man is now on his knees by the back gate ... Mr N is standing by the gate, specs in hand, talking and pointing at Junipers ............ what's going to happen?  Watch this space ...............
