Paul, i was listening to your repairing the soil podcast and I thought you referenced a rome olive.  The episode deleted itself; but, not sure if i remember that right.  We are looking for a good edible fenceline to block us from an upcoming toll road.  

that sounded like it might work.  Other suggestions are welcome

This is a popular topic on this forum. Often this type of hedge is called a fedge (if you are looking for my search terms to research this). I'm going to give you the links to several previous discussions which may have information relevant to you.

You might pay particular attention to the regions where people are posting from to see if their information is relevant to you in your growing circumstances. Don't feel shy about reviving an older topic if you see something that looks relevant, but need more information. That's how these older topics develop into stronger information resources over the years.

Thanks, I will look at those threads.
 
These are not the droids you are looking for. Perhaps I can interest you in a tiny ad?
