When is the best time to cut a hedge?
Date: Thu 13th June 2013
It's that time of year (despite the cold weather and late start to the season) for cutting box, beech, hornbeam and privet hedges. This will give them time to put on a bit of new (soft) growth before the season is out, leaving your hedge looking fresh rather than hard and newly trimmed. Of course, if there is a nesting bird in there then leave well alone until all is clear. Birds nesting in the garden are usually gone by July. Chris
