Hedge pruning

Hedges give a touch of neatness to a garden, but need occasional pruning.
Our garden has a variety of hedges. Beside the driveway – in a raised garden – we have a small, shaped hedge of Duranta ‘Sheena’s gold’.
On the other side of the driveway is a tall hedge of Orange Jessamine (Murraya paniculata), which makes a good privacy screen. After rain, this beautiful screen is covered with creamy white flowers, which smell like orange blossom. Both of these hedges are underplanted with Lomandra Tanika, which adds a touch of softness.

Viburnum

The soft new leaves on the Viburnum are in stark contrast to the older leaves which are hard and leathery.  Flowering in spring with delightful white flowers was an invitation to foraging bees.  Our Viburnum hedge needed a good prune as it was growing over the path and towering to about four meters and not allowing sun  into the neighbouring garden.
