This is not the first hedge we have renovated during the last two years, however it is one of the most dramatic.
The subject in question this time is a long overgrown yew hedge Taxus baccata which divides the house from the stable block. Over the years the hedge has crept higher and higher, increasing it overall high by nearly double. Taxus baccata is a conifer which responds well to hard pruning and will show very good signs of regrowth within two years.
The hedge has been feed with a liquid fertiliser and will continue to be feed fortnightly until early September to help encourage the development of regrowth, we will then apply a general purpose granular feed in March.
