More hedge trimming

A little more time in the garden dealing with the spring jobs. Hedges are really important to do before the birds start nesting. So here’s our hedge trimming progress.

The hawthorne has been cut and shredded and put on the compost….

and the laylandii nice and trimmed.

We do try to keep the permaculture ethic and use waste from our own plot to benefit the garden. We’re keeping the bramble and the like (see above picture) to push into the gaps in the hedge which will stop the litter blowing into the garden and¬†hopefully be a shelter for wildlife. The laylandii is much too acid for the compost thats why it’s best to take it to the recycle centre. Happy gardening folks!
