No, the hedges do not have to be cut every year. Organic farmers are only allowed to cut them every two years. Nobody objects to banks being cut back at junctions or on bad bends, but they are of course mown on both sides,along the whole length of roads. They do have to be done once a year to keep the drains free, but not, surely when they are in full flower? And at the beginning of June?
