Beautiful Cherry blossom is seen everywhere in the spring time especially in urban areas and most gardens. However in the arable areas of the midlands very few are seen in hedge rows. They must be there, but due to annual hedge trimming they do not have chance to flourish. This is gradually changing due to a new incentive to encourage hedges to be trimmed less. I understand that their leaves are very tasty to caterpillars and moths which must be a big incentive to plant some. They make great trees for gardens, and can be planted in existing garden and field hedgerows.
