Miracle of the month is a 4 or 5 yr old hawthorn I dug up and transplanted,
I’d taken some cuttings from another plant, failed miserably. I now have a plant pot of dead sticks. The transplant was going the same way, but it got moved from one part of the garden to the other - it’s in a part of the garden I’m trying to make useable - and amazingly it’s doing a Rocky impression and fighting back.
Just need some blackthorn, white flowering hawthorn- the Ivy is a few feet away, and I have “proper” beginnings of a hedge. If I give myself 20 to 30 years before being taken out feet first, I’ll turn my few hundred meters of Privet into a “real” hedge.....
Pyracantha- my folks had stand alone. Kinda looked interesting, but attracted zero interest from squirrels, blackbirds etc. Where is the fun in that?!
