Win­ter is a per­fect time to trim hedges. If you have a fei­joa hedge give it a good trim now with hedge clip­pers. If you are con­sid­er­ing plant­ing one now is a good time. Why not choose an ed­i­ble op­tion over the bog-stan­dard pitto, Camilla, Pho­tinia, or Grisilinia? There are so many other ed­i­ble op­tions out there which will pro­vide screen­ing and a crop as well. Here are some sug­ges­tions: dwarf cit­rus, dwarf ap­ple, bay, tea (camel­lia species), pome­gran­ate, cof­fee, hazel­nut, cur­rants and goose­berry, blueberry or rose­mary.
