In response to Niall’s post on Zulu Barbwire… mol-d
I am reliant on natural vegetation as my only form of defense, the wire fences having been stolen many years back. The hedgerows are admittedly quite wide, 2 – 4 meters, but are filled with many thorny plants that provide us with impenetrable barriers. Here are some effective plants to use. Dovyalis caffra, Dovyalis longispina, Gymnosporia buxifolia (any Gymnosporia in fact), Carissa marcrocarpa and the vicious, fast growing Scutia myrtina.
