Anything could happen Steve
Don't try it on conifers though. They don't regrow.
That'll be OK then, a good haircut does it no end of good.
You might have to wait till next season for a good greening up but it's very difficult to kill privet
I'm a bit worried about ours. They were all lined up and facing North.
What is the hedge? privet, conifer or something else
I've got a couple of shrubs looking like that but I'm sure yours won't be for the same reason
They were completely smothered in hedge bindweed and when I removed it everything was wet and yucky. Now they've dried they look like yours.
Oh yes, I'll do that tomorrow, if I remember
I wouldn't do that but mine is a wildlife pond and the wildlife lurks in the detritus
I have several of the wild spindle berry, E. europaeus, some years I hardly any berries in spite of all the flowers about and apparently plentiful insects. Not the right ones at the right time I assume
That would be my guess except that all those I find in pots are shiny white. Or maybe I miss the ones that aren't.
