A Blog about my box hedge


By donnah


When we moved into this house this box was as tall as me and falling on its side,I have been cutting it for 5 years now and can not deicide what it should be as I am going to shape it into some thing nice

This is he (I call it a he as it wont do as it is told all the clipping in the world does not seem to make a difference)

Untill I got these out that made it sit up and think???????

I no it looks a bit odd in shape but I have been planting bits of box in the bald areas and it has finally caught up. So what do you think? Do I go for a train type theme or perhaps a catapillar?

A caterpiller would be hard I think, as you'd need to make it's sides curved. Well done on it so far!
