Q.How To Make Hedera Flower At Lower Height

Zone Holland | rrwouda added on December 16, 2022 | Answered

We have a rather long Hedera hedge between us and our neighbours. It’s about 20 meters long and rather boring. The hedge only flowers and fruits at the very top, which is over 2m high. To add more interest to us and the wildlife that visits our garden, Id like it to have more flowers and berries. Is there a way to ease the hedge into flowering at lower heights? Or will i have to add, say a H. Arborescens, in front of the existing hedge? Any tips?

I think interplanting will be the better option, here, as the methods that it would require to restore them to a more desirable state would be, likely, unsuccessful. Or, at the least, would cause you to lose your privacy for a short period, as the top has a chance to grow back. Yes, I would say that interplanting would be the best option, here.

I would, also, make sure that the soil is in good shape, as well. These articles will help you to test:
