Smelly

Could it be a Stinkhorn fungus hidden under a bush. Often smelled on a country walk. Smells like a nasty case of drains.

Asparagus New Shoots

The asparagus grows from the crown. The crown expands over time. The asparagus don't always come up straight, that's why hand-weeding is recommended.

Compost

Sorry folks, unless you make your own mixture you'll all have to get used to bought compost made of recycled rubbish. If nobody put glass, broken crockery, plastic, metal and wood in the garden waste/waste food bin there would be no problem; but they do!

Gardeners have clamoured for years for peat-free compost, and this is the result.

NewBoy, why does it matter? Hand weeding is usually the best option for asparagus beds or apply a mulch. Hoeing is usually a no-no.

I agree. If you look at it from the neighbour's point of view, that hedge must have impacted heavily on his garden, and cast a lot of shade.

Compromise and a bottle of wine seems the best route.

On the other hand, he had no right to cut your hedge. Perhaps he could have greeted you with a bottle of wine and a polite request.

If it's any comfort, they'll go somewhere else next year.

Usually Bush varieties are compact; as opposed to Trailing varieties.
