Violet, I've just commented on another thread about how hedgehogs like Pampas to hibernate in, so get your men to be very careful and think about somewhere you can transfer the little fellow to if you do find one.

Beech hedging advise

Ritchie, this might not apply in your case, but when deciding the planting line do bear in mind the width of the finished hedge, so that it doesn't grow beyond your boundary and so you've got access to cut it. So many people plant their hedges a foot inside their boundary fence/wall and in no time they're growing out across pavements/public footpaths/neighbours' gardens.
