  1. Not if they are clipped several times a year. I remember many years ago I was asked to remove a large Laylandii, it was over 65ft tall and the trunk was about 2ft in diameter. It was the last tree in a hedge. The hedge was about 8ft tall, 2ft deep and the sides were like the felt on a billiard table. The guy cut it several times a year. The trunks on the hedge were about 4 or 5 inches. He had planted it 25+ years ago and had decided to leave the last tree un-clipped, just to see how it would do. Nothing wrong with Laylandii as a hedge, just need to be properly maintained.

  9. Workers have the right to one uninterrupted 20 minute rest break during their working day, if they work more than 6 hours a day. This could be a tea or lunch break. The break doesn’t have to be paid - it depends on their employment contract.
  10. Have I logged on to mumsnet by mistake?
