Native hedging

Sad to say but we're only talking about 5 months or so and they'll be going dormant. If you get a chance move them at the beginning of winter rather than the end. It will give them time to settle in before spring. Any time when the ground isn't saturated or frozen once the leaves are off. With a bit of luck we'll have a proper winter, not one where it's saturated for the duration

Do they stink? I've never noticed that.

as regards 'thugs' I reckon a lot depends on your gardening style and how much space you have
