I know there are about a half-dozen different ways of establishing a hedgerow, but does anyone here have any experience creating hedges out of hazel or hawthorn coppice as depicted in the BBC series Tales From The Green Valley?

Someone else on these boards kindly turned me on to this series a little ways back:

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to grow their own hedgerow plants from scratch, then coppiced them, and then used the shoots to weave a hedge in the wintertime. How many years of new growth would it take before the hedgelaying could begin? And how close-together should the coppiced trees be spaced?
