I recorded the dawn chorus and ther Handmade programmes - at the moment I'm watching The Canal Trip - a real time journey on a narrow boat, with no commentary - bliss

Not tomato feed - that is to encourage flowering and fruiting - you want foliage not flowers.

Chicken manure is fine, farmyard manure is fine, Fish Blood & Bone is fine.

Newly planted leylandi dead?

The above site says "ultimate height more than 12 metres - ultimate spread 4-8 metres"

That's still one heck of a size - fine as a specimen, but how does it respond to close trimming and topping as a hedge?  For instance, does it keep it's lower branches?

Barry ??25 for 10 is exactly what I got them for so for 40 it works out at ??100.....yes mate maintaining them isn't a problem as I used to do this as a sideline in work....wow I take it you guys on here don't have much love for the leylandi...????

If we had £1 for every problem we've addressed on this forum about Leylandii, either trimming, shaping, or topping, or trying and failing to grow plants in a border near a Leylandii hedge, or dealing with the neighbourly repurcussions of a Leylandii hedge, none of us would ever bother to buy Lottery Tickets again
