Trimming the Summer House Hornbeam Hedge

Pruning at my farm continues at the long hedge that runs in front of my Summer House and along the road behind my Winter House.

The hornbeam, Carpinus, is deciduous and very fast-growing. In fact, it can grow about four to five feet per year. I always keep a close eye on all the hornbeams. Earlier this week, the crew tackled the hornbeam hedges in front of my main greenhouse. It's quite a task to get all of them trimmed properly, but the end result is well worth the effort.
