A new hedge takes shape?

Having had to remove our low rounded box hedging in Norfolk due to blight, this weekend it was time to put in it’s replacement – Ilex Crenata.  This is supposed to be about the best plant you can get if you want to create as near a box hedge look without using box.

Fingers crossed that in a few years it will have bushed out and with some careful clipping it will look as good as the box.
