On Saturday, Lucinda and I raided a couple of nurseries we'd discovered had a good stock of reasonably sized viburnum odoritissimum for a decent price.
The front hedge is a job I kept putting off but now seemed like the time to get it done, with a wet summer (hopefully) around the corner.
We came home with 17 plants. Along with the 15 smaller ones I bought in tubes a few days ago, that's most of our hedging plants taken care of.
My neighbour came around and we got to digging. Luckily, the soil here is soft and dark and full of worms which makes it easier to dig and, hopefully, will mean the hedge thrives too.
This one enjoyed helping with the mulching.
Now, fingers crossed for a wet summer (but not TOO wet) to give them a good head start in life and give us some privacy in the front garden.
