Q.How To Make Hedera Flower At Lower Height
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?
