Nutcutlet, many thanks for that, I'll add it to my eBay order list

I'm having a nightmare spelling your name on my phone, predictive text is not very flattering for you

That's pretty similar to the bad link I posted. Hawthorn based with blackthorn, crab apple, dogwood, hazel, green beech and dog rose. Enough for a 5m hedge all in for ??19.99

If you think that would be better than just hazel I'll go for that

Don't forget aswell, any mail order firm is only as good as the courier they use.
I'm sure everyone on here knows of someone that's had parcels thrown over the back gate

I've seen this on eBay

Not sure if that link works, I'm using my phone so not great with posting links. I just don't want it going too high too fast

Busy Bee, I know all about the digging, the highest part of my garden is about 1ft soil on top of Tarmac and hardcore. Used to be a road in between myself and my neighbours but it was swallowed up into a front and back garden. I got the back garden and they got the room to build a garage.

Which variety do you have?

The hedge would be about 12-15ft long and ideally 6ft high. We used to have a squirrel visit all the while but haven't seen it for years, think our cats told him to clear off. I only thought of using hazel as I didn't fancy having laurel as it's a bit boring.

Dovefromabove, you had to spoil it didn't you

 

I don't have a clue, I've seen on eBay a Cydonia Vranja and a Chaenomoles too. I thought a Quince was a Quince was a Quince

 

Who came out with the idea of naming different things all the same??

 

Which would be best in the pot? I can have pretty much any size pot there

Will a Quince grow ok in a large plant pot? I have space in my garden for 1 but I also have a north facing corner by the kitchen window and thought a Quince would look good there.

After getting the right side of my property sorted out, I need to turn my thoughts to the left side. At present there is no fence at all, again its not my property, but the neighbours are quite good to be honest but they prefer to spend their cash on planting things in their loft if you get what I mean

 

There was a hedge of conifers which I took down as they were bringing down low flying aircraft.

I am now thinking of planting Hazel there, this way I get some privacy in my garden and get free nuts too. Would hazel be ok with other plants as I have Photinia red Robin about 18" apart and its taking too long to grow. I was thinking the hazel would act as a windbreak and help the Red Robin to grow.
