What is the best time of year to prune hedges?

Hedge Pruning

When pruning hedges, you should remember to leave the base of your hedge slightly wider than the top. Doing so will allow sunlight to get to the bottom of the hedge.

If the top of the hedge is thicker and wider than the base, the lower branches of your hedge will become starved for light and die.
