Winter has been very mild, so far. That is good news for those of us working outside, but is it good for your trees?
The answer is, as always, it depends on the tree.
Some will be very happy in very wet clay soils, hornbeam come to mind. This is a good time to mention that if you are thinking of planing a new garden hedge then hornbeam is well worth considering.
It grows fast yet only needs clipping once a year, holds its leaves through winter, is a wonderful windbreak and provides complete privacy in summer.
Yew hates sitting in wet and it is always worth putting extra drainage beneath a young yew hedge if you have one.
