absolute shite, a autumn laid hedge if done properly can have nests the following season and most certainly the next.Bob is one of those know alls that know zero. Either hedges are run over with a flail to top and side them or they will need laying. When they have been layed there will be no hedge for nests for several years untill they have regenerated. At least flailing only takes top and sides off them and if field sides every few years but road sides every year as that is the regulation for road side hedges
So a 12 foot high hedge cut back and laid to at the most 3 feet and all the main growth removed to leave a few main trunks at a 39 degree angle has grown enough in 12 months to produce a thick hedge has it. You don't know what you are talking aboutabsolute shite, a autumn laid hedge if done properly can have nests the following season and most certainly the next.
