Yew Hedge at Back of Border

Larkspurlady, we are taking up a yew hedge in the near future, there's around 15 plants at 5ft tall, if you are anywhere near North Yorkshire and we can get them out in a reasonable condition, you are more than welcome to have them.

Difficult shady area - ideas?

Podophyllum and dodecatheon are a bit more unusual but quite reliable.

It looks a lot like the green manure I sew a couple of years ago which was mustard.

I have no idea N. There's two of them and the other ones even bigger, but not in front of a window. I'm assuming that they are a variety of sweet box. They are a small tree with an oval mid green leaf about an 30mm long, they are in flower at the minute.  White tubular flowers about 10- 12mm long and very strongly sweetly perfumed.

If I were to take the top off an established sweet box would it green up again? It's about six foot tall and quite a rounded bush, but is right in front of the kitchen window. I would like to reduce the height by about a foot, but don't want to ruin it if it isn't going to rebud.
