unfortunatly our elderly privet hedge looks like it is dying. some parts definitely have. it didnt do well in the frosts last year, and the dry weather probably sealed its fate.
Is it too far gone? if not any tips?
I have a habit of if i like a hedge on my travels I nip abit off (cple of bits maybe) then strip lower leaves / cut in half top leaves so more energy for cutting then simply stuff into a small part of garden & leave it alone...you can do loads of them... thus get young hedge plants. good luck
ps.cutting is about 3/4 inches..cutting put in upto small space below top leaves
