New hedges require formative pruning, establishing the shape and form, for their first couple of years after planting. Formative pruning is usually carried out in winter or spring.
After this, maintenance trimming is carried out, usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges. Some formal hedges may need three cuts a year. Maintenance trimming is generally carried out between spring and summer.
Shrubs vary substantially in shape, size and habit and come from a wide range of habitats and climatic conditions.
With an enormous range of shrubs, both deciduous, evergreen and semi-evergreen it is possible to find ones to suit a wide range of sites. Selecting the right shrub for the right place and soil conditions and buying a good quality plant is important if the shrub is to thrive.
Routine shrub maintenance requires feeding, mulching, watering, dead-heading, suckers and reverted shoot removal. Also, container or pot bound shrubs need regular feeding, watering and every few years, repotting.
Shrubs need routine pruning as well as trees in order to keep them healthy, productive and attractive.
