Q.A very old privet hedge . 8ft tall green on both sides but nothing in middle Want to thin one side hoping that will encourage growth
from bottom, and make easier to cut. As it acts as a shield Although I am desperate to thin hedge, as I am next to road I need privacy of hedge . It would take years to get anything to grow again. Will the middle sprout again once I have opened it up do u think?
