Hedgelaying

John French started hedgelaying the hedge that runs along the back of the vegetable garden. I am very pleased to see it happening because the hedge was not in great shape and something had to be done before we lost the hedge. The stems are cut almost all the way through so that they can be bent over and then will put on new growth along the stem. Hedgelaying has great conservation value and should take place every fifteen years or so, this is why the hedges in the U.K are so old because people still do this to keep the hedge is good shape.
