If you plan to plant an evergreen hedge in the garden, you should do it in late summer. It can begin at the end of August. However, it should be completed by mid-September. An evergreen hedge, such as thuja or laurel, has the advantage that it does not lose its leaf dress and therefore also looks beautiful in winter.

That's how it works:

  1. Determine where the hedge should go. It is best to mark this with a cord so that the hedge is also being planted. The plants themselves should have the same distance, otherwise there may be gaps.
  2. Dig holes, insert plants, ensure the same height and fill the hole with soil again. You should only carefully step on the earth.
  3. You should cut back the hedge immediately. You can do that vigorously. In any case, you should cut long, unbranched shoots.
  4. Now pour on vigorously and do not neglect this in the following weeks, because young plants in particular need a lot of water.

A fast growing hedge can reach the desired height in just a few years.
