Your very own hedge fun!

Amateur Gardening - - Tried & Tested -

Th­ese days, hedg­ing plants can be bought and planted at any time of the year, but the tra­di­tional time was al­ways No­vem­ber. In years gone by, hedg­ing plants were only avail­able as bare-root plants, lifted from open ground on a nurs­ery. Th­ese plants needed to be planted in gar­dens when they were dor­mant, be­tween No­vem­ber and March. It was only in the 1950s and 1960s that nurs­ery plants for sale were grown in pots.

So, with an eye to the tra­di­tional tim­ing for hedges, let’s look at some of the fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries that are con­nected to them.
