At last we get to plant something

Hedges and stuff!

After the mass destruction involved in clearing the garden area of old trees we finally got to do some constructive planting.

Hedges

We are replacing the mass of Thujas with a mixed hedge, providing plenty of interest for wildlife.

Common Hazel

Plum Cherry

Common Privet

Glossy Buckthorn 

Spindle Tree

Blackthorn

Bloodtwig Dogwood

Guelder-Rose

Beech

Hornbeam

This is the hedge that faces out to the road. 

We also planted along the drive for some way, this being mixed beech and hornbeam.

And planted our first tree, a crab apple to pollinate the apple trees.

All in all a good start to actually planting up the new garden.
