My neighbour does not want 20ft conifers......she wants them at 50ft. I lived in darkness for may years until the council intervened. Don't think she's off the wall. Just doing it because she can.

Thanks for the idea of growing something up them. Am taking on board all that is being suggested.

Edited in response to moderation. Thanks Gardenlaw!

@bushie - with a bit of research you should be able to turn an eyesore into a thing of beauty- good luck!

Keep a good sense of humour like that and you'll be alright!

Any one that thinks a 20ft (dead or otherwise) Lleylandi can in any way be turned into a thing of beauty is either out of touch or completely off their trolley.

Then have me edited, moderated, banned or whatever your current choice of over reaction is.

I stand by my comment that there is no way Lleylandi can be made to look good dead or alive.

I can't have you anything. It's not my forum.

Read back through the thread (properly this time) and you'll see that the suggestions made are to plant a screen to hide the leylandii. Except despair, of course, who thinks growing stuff up the leylandii is a good idea, so maybe your ire is better directed that way? :wink:

Plant Pyracantha keep well watered for a year and then simply keep triimmed to a slim evergreen hedge with the added benefit of berries in the autumn to feed the birds


What an excellent suggestion a slim evergreen hedge, certainly beats trying to grow stuff up the Lleylandi.

Not only good advice for me to research, but entertainment as well! Thanks to all of you.

I am inspired to think I can make those dead trees into a thing of beauty. I'll see what I can achieve.

Your only limit is your imagination!

Be sure you don't fall foul of the high hedge legislation yourself - it doesn't just apply to leylandii.

It doesn't apply to bamboo or a deciduous plant
