Will conifers ruin my new rose bed?
ClareElisabeth Posts: 3
My next door neighbor has filled his garden with leylandii trees, which are at least 8ft in height. We both have medium size gardens. He has made a sort of maze out of them, so he has loads in a very confined space just the other side of my fence. Issue is, is that the only place I can put in a rose bed is against my side of the fence, meaning the roses will be less than 10ft away from all of his leylandii tress; as this spot gets the most sun. The soil type is heavy clay, but the garden already feels hard underfoot despite the unusually wet spring we have had... so usually, I would need to apply a really good drainage system, but considering his roots have probably sucked all the gardens dry for at least another 2 houses down, should I even bother? PLEASE HELP
