hellebores in sunshine
This morning I picking up my hedge for the front of the garden. More about that another time.
I also picked up 6 bare root green pivot hedging plants to fill the gap left in the hedge on the cliff. I was lucky enough to get almost enough hedging plants from a gardening friend (Pat) to run along the cliff behind the house. So today I planted the remaining piece of the privet hedge.
I also planted 4 Cotoneasters dammeri. I bought these 4 plants to hang over the lowest part of the cliff and cover it. I am not mad about Cotoneaster generally but I guess every plant has its place. And most plants will look well if you take care of them.
The final thing was to plant 16 bare root beech hedge plants to fill the gaps along the drive. I have now had to replace all of the Lidl/Aldi beech hedging I originally bought. For hedging in future, I'm sticking with my local garden centre.
Also, I took a break to help hubby with the enormously long plastic membrane needed on the front ditch. So a good day's gardening!
