Help! Will additional 2nd row of beech damage established hedge?
I have 3 yr old beech hedge. It's about 7ft but not thick enough to provide good screening and I am not sure if it ever will. I live next to a busy road and the main path to the local shop. All the more reason I need a good barrier. I am planning to add a second row of beech hedging. My dilemma is, will adding another hedge kill the roots of the existing hedge? Will the new hedge be deprived off nutrients from the established roots? Any help is appreciated as I have already ordered the 50 beech hedges for delivery in November.
