When we first saw the house, and last year, when we visited, the bottom of the garden was screened from the laboratory by a lot of nice plants. However, the plants were on the laboratory side, and, on our return this year, they have all been cut down. We now have the dubious sight of a shabby building as we sit on the terrace. After some thought, and investigation, we decided to put in a cypress hedge.
Another trip to the garden centre required. We found the plants, but there were no prices on them. We also bought some oleanders and a few other bedding plants. We found the lady, and the trees were just 0.95 each. It took a bit of doing, but we managed to explain to her, that we wanted 90 of them! She thought we only wanted to pay 90 cents! They are only about 3 ft tall, so we also got 5 taller ones, to make a pleasant break to the row.
We got them all in, including the 5 taller ones, but Ed simply made the holes the correct distance apart. When we ran out of trees, we went back to the garden centre and got 10 more!
