Taking over my hedge

Posted: 02/07/2017 at 17:22

I think Borderline is close with Jasminum, but not officinale, J. beesianum, maybe which has tiny pink flowers occasionally among huge amounts of green. Cut out and keep cutting out any bits that appear. Plants can't live without leaves

Are you still planting any seeds?

seed sowing, that reminds me, must go and collect some Ragged Robin in case it doesn't self sow

Replanted sea holly, now looks like it's on way out

you could try cutting it right back, it's what Beth Chatto does with plants in her dry garden if they're stressed. I would go for cut back, water once, cross fingers

I leave mine as well. Plants, including bulbs and corms, belong in the ground

Birch seedlings

I can see a birch as a tree in a hedge, but I can't see it responding well to being cut as part of a hedge

What is this?

looks like Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the Hedge. Supposed to taste of garlic, but no garlic I've eaten tastes like that.

Hypericum?

No, that doesn't sound like Tutsan, they are individual small shrubs. The flowers aren't big enough for H. calycinum which does spread like that so I don't know what you've got there.

Hypericum?

the most likely present from birds is Hypericum androsaemum, the native Tutsan. 

Nectaroscordum seeds

When the plant drops its seed is the time to sow any hardy plant. Just sow and leave them alone.


I should think 3 or 4 years to flower,
