Rogue hedge trimmer outrage!
The so called landscape gardener in the employ of the little old lady next door has 'trimmed' our deciduos mixed hedge without our permission, even though I spoke to him part way through about how I was trying to grow it slightly higher, and many of the shrubs being in bud. What really annoyed me was him saying 'it's not even a very good hedge because it's not all privet it's got holly, nettles and bramble in'. Yes and hornbeam, quince and various other shrubs perfect for a mixed hedge! Has anybody else had this probelm and how did you deal with it?
