Hold Off Prun­ing

The People's Friend - - Nature -

We’ve al­ways pruned our Ley­landii conifer hedge in the au­tumn, to avoid dis­turb­ing nest­ing birds. But I’ve now dis­cov­ered that au­tumn prun­ing is what’s caus­ing the bald patches, so I’m go­ing to hold off till early spring. Ley­landii have a bad name be­cause they grow so fast, but if you trim them twice a year, they make a good hedge.
