    1. Thanks for the comment and your thoughts on my blog, I’m very much a novice so get a real thrill when someone comments on or likes a post. I’ve looked at your blog, some great posts, following it now.

  1. We have Leylandii planted to protect us from the north and north east winds which are dreadful here; I wish something else had been planted but they were here when we came and it seemed silly to take them out and start again but I wish I had, I think you’ve done the right thing.

    1. I hope so, the wind here is nasty but I think laurel can cope, also it will get good light so I hope it will grow reasonably quickly. Thanks for this comment too.

      1. Laurel can be as much of a problem as Leylandii, it will also take a lot of water from the soil and will eventually need pruming twice a year.

  2. Thanks, that’s useful to know. The ditch running behind the hedge is a drainage ditch and there’s nearly always water in it, the laurel are welcome to that! Yes, I’ll need to keep it under rigorous control, it’s a thug if it gets away from you.
