Minimising a mature hedge?

Posted: 01/01/2017 at 10:18

Hello and Happy New Year


Is it a privet?  Can you show us a photo of the leaves and stalks and a photo of the whole hedge?


Privet  copes very well with being cut hard back and kept as a neat closely trimmed hedge - I'd rather have a hedge than a fence

New Year's Day 2017 Flower Count

Posted: 01/01/2017 at 10:13

Been out there in the drizzle, notebook in hand - not a lot in flower this NYD compared with last ...


Hellebore Ericsmithii 'Snow Love'


Sarcocca confusa - Sweet box


Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles'


Campanula poscharskyana


Viburnum bodnantense 'Charles Lamont'


Primula vulgaris


Hesperis matronalis


Crocus 'Snow Bunting'


... full of buds and almost out is Hellebore orientalis 'Tutu', and Rosa 'Bonica' has a couple of buds in colour, but I don't think they'll come to anything.


Not a sign of snowdrops or violets yet ...
