I am pleaching limes into a raised linear hedge. Do I stop the lateral framework when it reaches the adjacent tree trunk or do I let it grow across into the next "area". Hope that makes sense.
Thank you

I am a great fan of Pleaching.
Monty Don wrote a piece on Pleaching limes, The title was Pleacher's Pet and was published in The Observer, Sunday 3 November 2002 its on line if you want to read it?
Also John Hoyland on 26 Nov 2011 in The Telegraph wrote 'Pleaching: The art of training trees'

Hope this helps?
