Laurel hedge with fruit trees?
We moved into our house last year, between the paddock and house/garden it has a very overgrown leylandii hedge which i'm slowly taking down, presumably it used to be a windbreak but the lower branches are now bare and it doesn't do much other than block out the sun!
However we are in a windy spot so at the top end i've replace the laylandii which a mixed hedge of blackthorn, rose, beech etc. At the bottom end I was thinking of some laurel but it seems a shame not to use that space to put some small fruit trees that don't mind the wind, I was thinking Czar plum and an apple of some kind. Would it look odd to have a laurel hedge with a couple of trees mixed in? Would it work?
Thanks! I'm a keen but not particularly experienced gardener....
