Along the north facing fence in our back garden I inherited a hydrangea petiolaris, a jasmine and an unknown white sinle small flowered rambler rose, I've added a clematis montana. While we were away, our neighbour hacked iot back (again) with shears or a hedge trimmer and chopped the whole top down, all on our side, not just what overhung their new fence(which is attached to the old one) they've cut it so hard that there is loads of dea material all over now, and I don't really know how to best help it recover, I haven't seen them yet, and will ask them to leave our side alone ( they also filled my green bin with the clippings in plastic bags which I've asked them not to do before) I'm also going to say I'll cut it back their side if they need me too as they just treat it like a hedge and lop away hard, I was so upset when we came nome, now I'm just very very cross! They don't do plants, just fence to fence artificioa; turf (yes we've got it but at least I got to widen the flower borders!) and a giant buddha statue (they're not buddhists...)help!!!
