New hedge for 2016
So, new year, new plans. I am looking forward to our next visit to the Creuse, we have recently acquired an extra slice of garden (I know, I know, not very practical but it was a 'coup de coeur') so I am planning what to do with it. The existing hedge (20m)is a mix of brambles and chestnut, I'd like to have a mix that will take an annual walloping from the hedging tool on the tractor but would give a range of colour through the seasons and even some edible crops too. Plants I have thought of: elderflower, forsythia, blackcurrant, hops as well as keeping the existing chestnut. Any other suggestions of what would thrive under a neglectful gardener's care welcomed!
