Have you thought of a native hedge? Sloe, hawthorn, field maple etc. They are berried, good for humans and wild life. You can plant in those tree protector tubes.

We inherited a laurel down each side of our garden, not a pretty hedge and not easy to cut. We pruned by hand and it only had a couple of blackbird nests. We cut it back and hubby dug out the roots. Hard work but worth it. We put up bird boxes and climbing plants on the fence that was behind and have tits, wrens and robins nesting.

The conifer hedge we inherited at the bottom of the garden hubby cut back to 6ft from 30ft. That is a much better backdrop for my plants and much easier to cut with the hedge trimmer. It is beginning to brown so we are thinking we may have to remove it eventually and will replace with a mixed native hedge.

Tried Doctor caroline Pink this year. Good fleshy lovely tasting.

Small Garden Pearl in hanging pots in the greenhouse. Lovely flavour, easy to grow and quite prolific over the whole season.

Ailsa Craig as hubby likes it for eating and cooking.

I got two from a friend: Golden sunrise(I think) which I thought was a Sungold so have been disappointed in lack of taste and furry flesh. Not nice. The other was Black Cherry which my grandson loves(I think he just loves tomatoes) which is also tasty and quite prolific.

Can anyone identify this

Garden(and domestic) tools seem to meto be designed and developed for male hands. you know the bars you have to hold together to make the mower drive. the lever you have to hold in on the scarifier, the pull chords to make petrol tools start. I am not a very small person, but they beat me.

Can anyone recommend a good make of greenhouse pls?
