Hedge laying is the art of cutting hedgerow stems partly through near ground level so that they will bend without breaking and will continue to grow. The laid stems are arranged to form a stock proof barrier. New growth comes from the cut stump rejuvenating the hedge and thickening up the base.
Please spread the word to friends and gardeners as this is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to maintain hedges which are crucial for biodiversity.
