Best method for a hedgerow in tarmac.
As usual left to muggins here to sort out yet another blown down fence in the garden. This time however it is actually my side - so no choice. Now, i was tempted to put up a fence...but the thought ( and major expense ) of digging in tarmac/concrete/pulling up existing loose posts etc...
..so..decided to plant a hedge..be done with it...my question is..
I have tarmac, scratch the surface and there is..clay...Now...can I simply..dig a hole ( nothing too special/big )..throw in rotted manure perhaps..bonemeal..the usual...compost..and bang in a hedge..a foot/half each time?
Or..a better way of doing this..well..when i say better..i think thats the easist way..just asking..will a hedge take..in clay..I mean..should I perhaps link the holes I dig ( about 15 of them up side of house )...any need to do..a trench..or will a single hole for a plant do the job?
Thoughts welcome. Thinking of the common..large leaf light green type...very common..but cheap n cheerful. Again, thoughts / ideas to tart it up MORE THAN WELCOME.
..and if the neighbour dont like it..let them pay for a fence!!
