the Brits traditionally boiled their veg to death with another half hour to make sure but I think that generation has gone. 


Many years ago when I was a district nurse (that dates it ) I'd visit a couple of patients at 9am and the veg would be on for lunch.

definitely forget the laurel. Not only is it poisonous, though I doubt if anything would eat it, it's also an ugly thug and not native.


Holly is quickish once it gets going. The green ones are quicker than the variegated garden ones

Clematis I.D?

there's one stem near the bottom left that might be clematis, (only might be). Nothing else is.

I love a mixed hedge and it's more appropriate to a traditional country garden. 


Beech and hornbeam are native to the more southern parts of the UK. I don't know how they do further north, someone will know. I have hornbeam in 2 aspects and it doesn't cope well in the one that's exposed to full sun and prevailing wind, though I think the soil is poorer and drier there as well and that may be the biggest problem
