If you can dig a trench and refill it loosening the soil it will give the hedge a better start.i allways do this with a mini imagine you are too late to put a hedge in till november anyway


This is the hedge it is growin around my fathers house. We have growing it from slips before. So goin to trim his hedge and use slips to create my hedge. Free and simple. If it all doesn't grow easy to stick n few n November.

Slotted concrete posts are cheaper than 4x4 wood ,,put wood in the ground its rotting within a year or less ,panels ,gravel boards and concrete posts ,job done for ever,,the panels will last as long as you dont plant shrubs or hedges near them
