New hedge advise

Posted: 25/12/2014 at 17:57

low maintenance isn't really a hedge thing. It's far easier to trim a hedge fairly regularly than to get it back when it's out of control.

Yes, look it up and check pruning. It's quite straggly, especially after this wet year or two and I don't know how it would respond to hedging. I've only cut off a few broken branches so far.

Cornus mas is another yellow winter flowerer to consider. It's very reliable for me

Hi Fishy, good to hear the snowdrops are awakening.

Sorry about the dog, most people (including me at times  ) don't know when to stop eating so it would be a lot to expect from a dog.

The soil is very well drained and lacking in humous. It's now quite shady which it wasn't in the beginning. It may not be ideal, may be the reason I had to wait so long

Which species are you growing John?

I grew rugosa a few years ago, sowed September, germinated October, one or two had a flower by the following August.

Moyesii and rubrifolia took a bit longer
