planting on verge.
Thought I would show a photo of a piece of roadside verge outside our bungalow.My dad started cultivating this bit about 20 years ago, planting a few snowdrops and daffs, I have carried on the tradition and have removed the old privet hedge, replacing with laurels. I planted them last spring, they have made all that growth in one year. I will keep them to about 5 feet high to screen the bungalow from the road. I have taken it along another 8ft or so last year, and as I find more bulbs and turf from digging beds in the main garden I hope to take it all the way down.
