The Trimming Of The Long Box Hedge Begins

The continuing sunny weather has caused the delay in the trimming of the long box hedge that runs the entire length of the orchard. Trimmed in June in previous years, and usually the first hedge to be cut, the team have been unable to start trimming it as exposing the foliage to the sun causes it to scorch. Today, however, a window of opportunity was provided by a morning of slow moving cloud, giving enough time to trim the first part of the hedge. More cloudy days are needed in order for the hedge to be completed, but none are forecast during the coming week, so the trimming of the hedge still needs to be finished.
