Last March we planted a new bear root privet hedge bought 90cm tall
because we need it to provide screening fast. Only very few of the
plants produced leaves on the existing growth.Most of them shot new
growth from the roots, which now is only 30cm high. I need this hedge to
grow as fast as possible. I don't know why the plants didn't grow
properly and whether it is worth re-planting a new hedge. The plants
were not deep planted and the depth of planting, the soil and fertiliser
were identical. Any suggestions? any similar experiences?
I planted 100 potted oval leaf privet hedgeing plants 2 months ago in
good soil that is well drained. The plants have something like black
spot and some leaves are turning to copper like colouring, I put wind
breaker around hedgeing and also watered as recommended. Any suggestions
as to how I can rectify problem,also should I cover bed with grass
cuttings to protect against frost.
