Dutch hedgelaying demonstration

This is a tall double brushed hedge laid without adding stakes or binders. However, every few yards a live stake is left for strength.  Rather than just cut the top off the live stake it is itself laid high in the opposite direction to the rest of the hedge, providing additional height.




After last year's demonstration Somerset hedge, it was nice to see a Somerset class in this year's championship. Crooks can be used at either side of the hedge and may themselves secure sturdy rods which hold the top of the hedge firm.
