Gardener Spends Ten Years Sculpting a Giant Hedge into a Hundred Foot Dragon

75-year-old gardener John Brooker has spent the past ten years sculpting a giant hedge that stands in the grounds of Frizzleton Farm, near King’s Lynn, into a 100-foot-long dragon complete with large wings, fierce teeth and six sets of legs. Brooker spends hours trimming the large hedge and has to climb up a pair of 6-foot-high ladders to keep it in shape. When asked why he started the project he said "I was standing at my kitchen sink one day and thought the hedge was boring so decided to do something with it." he continues, "The shape just suggested itself. It was just a completely-straight privet hedge to start with. Then I thought I’d carve some arches in the other end, then a head and it just came from there.”
