Dead Leylandi

Can anyone suggest something that might grow through/on and disguise a Leylandi hedge that has been cut back far too severely. Will it recover? Too big to heave out for  various reasons. Thanks

    If it has been cut into brown stems, no it will not recover.  Give it the Heave Ho if you can.

    Yes, clematis montana - very easy, virtually no maintenance especially if you are happy to let it grow and spread.  There are beautiful white ones and also several shades of pink.  I think it does need some sun, though - will it get any?

  • yes it will get sun. Thank you so much every body

    One small point Jeanne- just make sure it gets off to a good start by preparing the planting hole well, feeding it with whatever your personal choice is and watering thoroughly. Keep an eye on it till it's established as the conifers will have taken all the nourishment and moisture from the ground around them image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
