Never seen a red privet

Alternate yellow and green was popular in my youth Some time ago now

I'm a cotoneaster fan but not as hedging. It grows well for me.

Cherry plums have not been hedged and are very leggy. Lovely though, in flower now, a few blooms on New Year's Day count.

Yes, I hate laurel, wish I'd never planted it. We've just cut back some enormous specimens. They had ideas above their station and were just about in the road. They now look HORRIBLE.  Bare and stumpy. They will regrow unfortunately

Hedging privet isn't wild privet

however wild it looks

as bold as you like. Ours was getting tangled in the phone wire an we took it back to 4ft. I would have cut it back to the ankles to get more growth at the base but we would have be open to the road and all the rubbish that people throw out of cars

I have wild privet in a hedge and on its own. I like it but its very floppy and straggly. I can't see it as a hedge on its own.

The rose and the viburnum are lovely in an informal native hedge but they're not really hedging plants. Maybe field maple the same, I haven't seen that hedged on its own.

Hawthorn very good for wildlife and clips well.

I think cherry plum suckers, mine seems to but haven't checked properly, they may be seedlings. But they look like suckers

I hate laurel

Hornbeam doesn't do well exposed to strong winds in my experience but may do better if the soil is better than mine

Flowering and scenting your garden now

Hebe 'Midsummer Beauty' is known as 'Midwinter Beauty' here Meomye.

For scent now, the Sarcococca above all else. Winter flowering honeysuckles and that pink viburnum aren't so generous with scent.

There's also a lovely pungent aroma when I walk on the Phuopsis stylosa where it's spread onto some steps. Not in flower, it's the leaves.

And the pile of horse s..t adds a finishing touch

Plant ID Please

I'm not that familiar with acid loving plants but I think it looks more like crinodendron as mollis suggests
