Hedge Laying Workshop

Date/Time Location Course facilitator
19 Mar 2022 9:30 AM - 3:30 PM Horsted House Bob Peate

Following our over-subscribed hedge laying day in November we are now repeating it for those who didn’t get a place first time around.
The workshop will again be led by Bob Peate, who lays all the hedges at Wadhurst Park (and elsewhere).
You will learn how to tackle an overgrown hedge and turn it into a living stock-proof barrier. And all without multiple cuts and scratches!
There’s a few items you should bring:
– a billhook*
– a pruning saw
– loppers
– suitable workwear and decent boots and gloves/gauntlets (you may be handling blackthorn, hawthorn, wild roses etc.)
– a pack lunch

Also, if you have them (though they will be provided):
– strimmer or slash hook
– sledgehammer or maul
– a small axe or side-axe
And, if you have one, please also bring a small chainsaw with spare fuel or battery + appropriate safety wear.

* Billhooks made by a blacksmith are generally far superior to those produced in a factory.

Can’t make this date? Event sold out? Please email our training organiser so that you will be on the list when we run the workshop again.
