planting a hedge by bog

sharon gallagher asked 11 years ago

I am planting a hedge on a new build in an open location on the edge of a bog in galway. I am considering laurel, green privet or cypress hedge. Which would give the best coverage, take the best in this particular location and be able to withstand the recent hard winters?

If you at the edge of bog, none of the mentioned plants are suitable as they are all out of keeping with the landscape.

Use the traditional hawthorn and holly mixed hedge, native and robust. The soil must not be wet.
