This is the ideal time to plant a hedge The purpose of this hedge within our garden design is to: create a secure boundary between the pond and the rest of the garden (to safeguard little people) create a wind barrier grow a natural bird nesting site provide a source of pollen and food for wildlife We have decided to plant a bare-root native wildlife hedge across the 8.5 meter width of the garden. We are leaving a gap in the middle so that we can erect a cast-iron full-length gate when the hedge eventually establishes. We have researched this and will be following advice from the London Wildlife Trust by planting a combination of native plants. We have prepared the planting area, removing all trace of couch grass and weeds, we have also uncovered yet more concrete :( String has been placed across the area. The hedge will be planted in a criss-cross diagonal pattern about 50cm wide with a bare-root plant positioned every 25cm along the length.
