A hedge or a fence

If you’re not sure, it maybe a fedge, rather like the one growing at RHS Rosemoor. It was born around four years ago, when around fifteen varieties and mixed colours were planted. The willow is harvested each year and the stems have been used to create the fedge.

The fedge will be clipped as it grows,  to maintain the geometric design.

The colours are planted in groups.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

See how the fedge blends with the background, creating strong vertical lines?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI was at Rosemoor for the sculpture in the garden, my first visit for several years. Each winter they have the sculpture exhibition, it blends beautifully with naked trees, the curves of the valley, hard landscaping and excellent design like the fedge.

  1. I like the fedge, what a great idea. I don’t remember the pine forest at Rosemoor though – is that an extension to the garden? It is about a decade since we visited though… time to return.

I would love to hear from you . . .
