Pruning new hedge - have I killed it?

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 09:45

Let us know what it is, I can't imagine who wrote instructions for you to snip off all the buds! 

If they were 3'  when you planted, you can cut them back to 2ft, that will allow them to shoot out from the bottom.

need to know what they are, but that's generally what you do with hedging

When you see new shoots, cut it back to about two inches from the soil, repot, knocking some of the old compost off, look for vine weevils, then repot in a pot just a little bit bigger than its in now. You can start to feed with a tomato feed  when you see flowers buds appear. don't feed before, there's enough in the new compost and it will just run riot with green.

Lovely Verdun, it's a shame they don't all hold their heads up, you end up laying on wet soil to take a photo.

Does anyone have any experience of, or advice regarding using Zopiclone to combat insomnia?

I'm not keen on taking them, but nor am I keen on feeling like a zombie due to lack of sleep.

So the Nightol didn't work for you then? OH uses them, non addictive no side effects except from my point of view when he goes off so soundly, snores and and I can't wake him.

We all need a bit of cheering up

 I love making up the tubs and baskets. Growing from seed is especially rewarding.
