New hedge advice?
Hi all, Over winter I planted a new hedge, bare rooted dormant plants, 80% hawthorn and 20% blackthorn. Its coming into leaf now and looks healthy but looking at it I think I may have done something wrong. The plants are about 50cms tall but only the top 20cms have leaves, leaving a 30cm gap of bare stems. Have I planted a row of mini standards or will it bush out at the bottom later? Am I supposed to prune it or something? I cant decide if it looks silly or if it will be ok in a few years. Thank you for your advice.
