Yew is an excellent tall hedging plant.

fairy54, go to a specialist for your hedging.  It is amazing how quickly little sticks grow up.  If you go to a specialist hedge supplier (not a garden centre) you will find the bare-root plants are incredibly cheap.  But be quick the hedge planting season is nearly over.

I saw the stumpery at Highgrove, and it was just that - stumps.

It was where a large tree had been cut off low plus the large roots.  There was a whole pile of them, and pretty ugly they were.  Black.  Admittedly the whole thing was softened by ferns but it was something that did not appeal.

Well, it certainly is suitable for seedlings.  Unfortunately they seem to be the wrong sort!  There are tomato plants in there and peppers.

As wood-burning stoves light like a dream, why don't you use matches if you are going to stress about firelighters?

We have a special word in Wales to deal with remarks like that.  Twp!
