pleaching hedge

how do you build the structure for a pleached hedge?

thila or hornbean which is the best?



Plant your hedge( I prefer a mixed natural hedge thorn, nut etc.with some dog rose) Let it grow to a good strong height and the stake and pleach it. I grew a very good hedge in 4 years by planting thorn whips, after planting cut them off to a third of their height , they then bush out and when they get to the height you what cut them again and every year after wards just trim like any hedge. It is an art and it is not easy you must have a good 'eye'!!
