With reference to recent posts about trimming hedges I've found a better way of doing it

Hawthorn. Interestingly I was talking to a guy today about laying it, it's a good candidate for it with plenty of length to work with. However it's not something I'd be over confident tackling without someone who knew more about it lending me a hand. That's just one small corner of it - it would take a long time to do it all.

If you were closer I'd come give you a hand. I originally learnt at an FSC course about 10 years back. Hard work but very rewarding when you look back and see what you've done. You can do a section each year so no need to do the whole thing. Gives a lovely thick hedge and good for wildlife.

Rugged individualism of a different kind. Left the house at half three, arrived in the lakes at about half seven. Base of the climb at nine and done at the top at two. Home at half seven.

Discovering that Screwfix spray glue is useless for making model trees, ended up paying four times as much for 3M spray mount, but it works.
