This is my hypericum hedge which was planted over five years ago and was a pleasure to look at until Johnny decided to trim it. Not only did he trim it while it was in flower he completely devastated a large part of it before I realised what he was doing.
He razed several plants to the ground. leaving just a thin ‘hedge’ of the plants which had propagated themselves from the parent plants!!!
What on earth possessed him to do a thing like that? When I saw what had happened I was visibly shocked but contained my anger and just said I was terribly disappointed that he had ruined a hedge which had taken five years to grow.
He didn’t seem to see what a daft thing he had done but I made it clear he was to ask me before cutting anything down in future. In fact, if i see him bringing in a chainsaw again I may be tempted to confiscate it!
