Hi Fran! I was thinking you had some sort of beautiful hedge in your yard that I seem to remember you posting on. I went back through looking for the post but couldn't find it. Am I mistaken? If not what was your hedge? I am ready to plant one. Hope all is well with you. I haven't really had a minute to blog OR read since I started school last summer. I have 3 papers to write and a gazillion chapters to read at this very moment. Quite a mess I've gotten myself into. It's all good...
Hi Mary~ "Beautiful Hedge".... yes that was me, I think I called the @#@%#@#% Hedge, because the Laurel hedge in our back yard, given it's way would *take over the world*. It is me that said we do not fertilize, water or encourage it in any way, yet it continues to grow profusely & require a 2x annual trimming that fills about 24 large yard sized bags. It requires ladders & electric hedge trimmer equipment. So yes, you were warned. The Laurel hedge is a hardy plant-- must be acid loving, because our soil here on the West coast is acidic. We actually paid someone a few years ago to whack it back with a chain saw, as the neighbor was putting in a new fence. That only caused it to grow with a vengeance. Don;t say you were not warned when you wind up spend a few weekends each year wrangling with a frickin' Laurel hedge. Although the living verdant wall of lush foliage is a thing to behold, it is no doubt a pain in the ass to maintain. Good luck kiddo!
Thanks Fran. I really do appreciate all the (hysterical) information.
Yes, in a few short years you may be writing similar posts.....we can commiserate together!
