Glasgow, United Kingdom
I was out for a nice meal this evening in Glasgow city centre. What's this got to do with gardening you ask? Well, while walking up Hope Street we came accross a big pile of rubbish and strewn in amongst it was a whole load of (I assume because I dont know) privet hedging. So we went into the pub and had a discussion about how to get this home (bearing in mind it was lying right on the busiest street in Glasgow). Obviously it was totally embarrasing carting it to the car in our glad rags. However we decided to go for it and loaded it in to the boot. What a laugh you can just picture it. Anyway my question is this, we have about 12 hedges with all the roots and soil attached and the height is about 8-10 inches. Given that it is totally freezing just now, can I plant them and if not how do I store them so they don't die. Btw best giggle we've had in years although major clean up of the boot will be required tomorrow! Lol.
