Those of you who follow my blog regularly may remember back in February we laid one of our hedges.
It looked rather drastic at the time – but this type of hedgerow management has been used for hundreds of years in Britain and Ireland. Our hedge is looking well, all the trees have regrown. This is what it looks like today.
The climbing roses which grow though the hedge are a heritage variety. They have been flowering all summer. The smell is heavenly.
