Planting hedge next to 3ft brick wall

One of the most frequent nuisances with hedges that people plant them too close to the property boundary and then the hedges grow out across pavements and footpaths. Have a walk round your area with a tape measure in your pocket and take some realistic measurements of the thicknesses of hedges that you want yours to be like. Then you can see where yours should be planted so that it's not a pain to the public.

You've set yourself a bit of a challenge. In UK it only grows from Derbyshire northwards on high moors and bogs, and is more generally found in bogs and forests further north in this hemisphere. If you do get it going it will be interesting trying to keep it going!

We must (sorry, should possibly) agree to differ, Hostafan, about gardening and grammar.
