When is the best time to take out a mature grisilinia that has been affected by the snow and frost? how far apart should the new plants be & how should we prepare the soil in advance of the new hedge? Finally is there anything we can do to protect it against snow & frost damage?

If it is possible to take out the stumps so much the better, but mostly it is enough to cut the dead bushes to ground level and plant into the gaps. Make gaps with a crowbar and plant between roots.

There is nothing can be done against frost damage except to plant hardy hedging: laurel and Portugese laurel did well and yew is completely hardy.
