January 2018. happy new year to you all. it seems like a pertinent month to go all Janus and look backwards over the past 6 months and forward over what stuff is to come in the new year we’ve had some wild weather here in ireland and by the looks of the news – there is unfortunately a lot of it about. myself and joe find it hard to believe that we only planted the little whips of hedging and trees 3 years ago this february. they are such strong, big, vigorous plants already with only those 3 years of growth in them… (click through to read more & see photos)
