Replacing dead escallonia hedge

judy o keeffe asked 11 years ago

I need to replace 100 ft of dead escallonia hedge. What would you recommend for an exposed site with heavy, clay soil thats relatively easy to maintain? I’d like to maintain it at 5-6 ft high? I was considering variagated holly? Any advice please and thank you.

The best hedge fo heavy soil in an exposed site is hornebeam, which looks a bit like beech or ordinary green holly.
