Thanks. Will leave it till early Feb. then.
"Look at the Natural England website where it is all set out. Recommended time for cutting hedges is January and February on a three year rotation." I wouldn't like to leave ours for 3 years, especially the cuppressus because that goes brown if you cut it back hard and never recovers and I don't want it getting any taller or wider. I'd really like to have it done twice a year but at £350 a pop I can't afford that. I used to have it done in the Autumn but the last couple of years couldn't get anyone to do it then.
