  • Ere! Ow did that hedge get so big!? by Dave Squire

    Hedges are sneaky… Even when you promise yourself that they won’t be allowed to get too big, somehow they always do…!

    That’s what happened in Rosemoor’s Spiral Garden to our Chinese privet hedge, Ligustrum sinense. It is a major feature of the garden and was planted in 1991. Echoing the design it does literally spiral outwards, subtly gaining height as it does so. Unfortunately it had long since ceased to be a thing of beauty and had turned into our version of the Berlin Wall, (old joke I know!). At about 75 metres long and up to 3 metres tall it took an age to cut and created far too much shade.
    Something had to be done!

    If you have been to Rosemoor lately you may have noticed the disappearance of a few trees and neat stacks of brash and logs in their place.
