I'm afraid some of those look as if they may be affected by blight.
Were the plants healthy? Did they have any black patches on the stems?

They are edible when ripe, but in my experience they're not really very tasty and I don't bother.
Under-watering and Over-watering can both cause similar symptoms.
Whereabouts are you and how often is the hedge being watered?

Good morning all
Like the new line in garden ornament Chicky
Had to put Poldark on 'freeze' for half an hour last night - the police helicopter with searchlight on was circling over nearby golf course and marshes, we couldn't hear the telly! Don't know what it was about - there's nothing on the local news websites this morning - after half an hour the chopper suddenly sped away in the direction of the airport.
Take it steady Wonky - I'm sure you feel weak due to lack of food, but not sure if roast pork and crackling is what you need right now!!!
Not sure which tree you mean. A broom is a shrub, a laburnum is a tree . Or do you mean this one
Or are you talking about one of my favourites, the Mount Etna Broom, Genista aetnensis?

Shoulder of pork in the oven with roasting sweet potatoes and red onions - french beans prepped and apple sauce already made.

White sprouting looks like this when it's ready to start harvesting. Take the central spear first, then the side shoots will keep appearing.
Calabrese looks like this and has fewer side shoots
Hmm, why not coppice it?
It responds well to that treatment, you get all the benefit of the wonderful foliage and yet you can keep it to a reasonable size. That's what I would do.
