At this time of year the trimming of my privet hedges and the ensuing clean up is a large chore, I usually can find someone interested in getting some clippings to start their own hedges. This year it will be my son and daughter-in-law. I have helped start at least three yards with free hedges this way. It offers me free help with the chore and provides a free hedge that will grow thick and tall within the next two years to those that help me. All at no cost, sort of like the friendship bread in a way.

sorry couldn't get my log in to work but you simply put it in water in a bucket to root is all. I am not sure of forsythia clippings I have only done the privet hedges this way

Within the last week I planted northern privet for a hedge/screen. Should I fertilize and what do I use? Most seedlings are 1-2 feet in height. They are v shaped with only 2 branches.
