well a couple of months really. Some ‘before and after’ shots of the hedge then and now:

Really good to see new shoots from the cut rootstocks – they are easy to spot as they are quite red when young. Maybe now I will stop going on and on about the hedge?! But don’t count on it!

We didn’t kill it!

Proof at last that our hedge has survived our attempts to tame it:

All the cut and laid stems are sprouting, the whips that were planted to fill the gaps have mostly taken as well and all we need now is new shoots sprouting from the base.

There is also a beautiful, previously hidden strip of bluebells in the gap between the two hedges.
