Q.Help With Controlling Growth On My Beech Hedge
Hello. I wish to reclaim a part of my garden which is between my fence and my beech hedge. Iwant to take my fence down and move it back to be adjacent to the hedge. The gap between them is one metre 3 feet width and 48 ft length so a good long strip to reclaim. I have taken the main branches of the hedge on the garden side back to the main trunk and want to stop them from growing back. I want the other side of the hedge facing the fields to continue growing. Is there a solution I could paint/ treat the sawn branches with to stop them growing .

I'm not sure you can stop it from growing on that side, but here's an article that will explain how to trim it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/beech/prune-beech-hedge-trees.htm
