Tamed Privet

Looking bare but much tidier.

The Kurrajong now stands out and waits for a new garden bed.

I’ve been away the last week and during that time the privet has come down- at least to the base stumps that will strike and turn back into the neat, disciplined privet hedge it once was rather than the tangled rangy mess it had become.

It looks bare at the moment but now gives me the space to fill in behind with the rose climbers and ramblers and soften the front. A bit of a shock, but just what the garden needed. I also have access to a new corner to plant in – just the spot for some of the many plants I’ve come back with.

Hopefully it follows the lead of the previously trimmed privets.
