Great programme - lovely people - I'm so glad you've created the gardens you wanted - I'm sure they'll evolve as time goes on - I'd love to 'revisit' as they develop, and hope all four of youcontinue to enjoy helping your gardens along. 


How to deal with Leylandii hedge behind a border?

Posted: 13/01/2017 at 17:28

Leylandii hedging which has been cut back hard into the brown wood is , IMHO, one of the ugliest sights I've ever seen in a garden (or elsewhere for that matter)... If you have a soul (and I think you do ) my guess is that you will regret it. 


Ive seen many attempts to camouflage it - none successful. 


I would either cut it down and replace it with something beautiful and wildlife friendly, or find a way to keep it trimmed regularly and keep it as a formal backdrop to what sounds like a lovely border.

Living near the coast, I'm amazed by the number of people I met out walking in mudflats, estuaries, beaches etc who  have absolutely no idea and don't understand even the basics about tides, let alone about spring and neap tides.  If we're going walking on the coast I check the internet for the local high and low tide times so we don't take risks.

Same here Topbird - goldfinches, greenfinches and bluetits tucking into the sunflower heart feeders in the back garden.  In the front garden there's a blackbird making determined attempts to hang from a sunflower heart feeder and steal the goldfinches' lunch

Pete8   I've used Roundup effectively on ivy, but on young growth which I bruised first.
