Wonderful - we've not seen ours yet - it's still pretty chilly here in Norfolk - but I'll keep my eyes open in the evenings
A willow fedge is a living thing which has to be regularly trimmed and managed or you will end up with a row of very large trees, so I don't think that is what you want.
Is this the sort of thing you were looking at http://www.primrose.co.uk/-p-2144.html?adtype=pla_with_promotion&kwd=&showPLA=true&gclid=CN73qoz238QCFRQatAod3j8AJA
Something like that could be fixed by a competent handyman - but do get someone who is recommended by people you know - there are some useless people out there who take your money and do shoddy work.
How big can this hedge be? In the countryside you can have wonderful fruiting hedgerows with damsons, blackberries, hazel nuts, apples etc - but you need plenty of space for that
I tend to put manure around the roses in the autumn, and BF&B, or specialised rose food in the spring. I would pull the bark mulch away from the root area before adding the manure or fertiliser. You can put the bark back over the fertiliser.
Lovely to hear what you've all been doing. I'm envious of your germinating seeds - with recent events here I've not sown anything yet ... soon, very very soon
We've just been watching Springwatch Easter Special (again) and now we're watching the Caribbean prog - but I think I'd better have a quick catnap if I'm going to stay awake for Poldark
Great minds Hosta - and there's a chance we might be right too LOL
maybe phlox perhaps?
