How can I thin a Privet hedge?

Posted: 25/02/2017 at 11:12

You can be vicious.

ours reached the phone wires years ago and wide in proportion to height. It's at a manageable 5 or 6 foot now. I think we should have taken it back further to thicken out the bottom foot.

They do better here Fairy, almost reached weed status  I have seedlings coming up in grass paths and in cracks in paving

But the more they seed the better.

Buy when in flower to see colour of leaves and flowers. I find it grows anywhere well-drained. If it does better in moist places for Fairy that suggests it will grow in either.

Seeds around and has put itself in places where I wouldn't have put it. Dead easy but not from dried out corms in bags at the GC. Very good at seeding into cracks in paving and right up against tree trunks.

It's such an odd word isn't it?

Maybe you should rename your house. How about Prunus avium

 Hi Hosta.

There's another one of these on another thread

Plant ID please

2 different plants, the top looks like Iris foetidissima the second Carex pendula. Feel the leaves, run your finger down the back. The Carex will have a ridge, the iris is flat. and the two are arranged differently at the base

Any ideas what this plant is?

I think it's Carex pendula but the picture cuts off all the flower/seed head bits.
