Am I right in thinking there has already been a tree removed from this row or was it storm damage? Either way, you can see that there is no lack of vegetation around it and even a bramble (?) starting to climb up the tree. The tree itself is already 'closing the gap', but will do it quicker with the removal of all the dead and damaged twigs and branches.

I have no idea what happened to that tree, it is in a garden we visited. You are right, there is absolutely no problem with things growing next to this hedge, both sides. It is about 100ft tall, so there is a lot of shade to one side, yet it makes no difference. I don't believe anything is planted next to the hedge, things just grow.

I stared up at this hedge in awe, I think it is magnificent! I wouldn't like it next to our tiny garden, but would love it in grounds. :D

It's the 8th wonder of the world except if it's in your neighbour's garden. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

What area of the country was that monster in Will ?

I have just dug down to 2ft the boundary of 20ft high conifers and despite days of rain recently the soil is total dust and nothing else will grow there even weeds dont grow
