When is the Best Time for Hedge Trimming

The best time to trim hedges depends on the type of plant. Here are the general guidelines for common hedge plants:

  • Evergreen hedges (such as boxwood, holly, and rosemary): These can be trimmed at any time, but the best time is during the growing season, which is typically spring or summer. Trimming during the dormant season in winter can cause stress to the plant.
  • Deciduous hedges (such as privet, beech, and hawthorn): These should be trimmed after they have finished flowering and before new growth begins, usually in late spring or early summer.
  • Flowering hedges (such as lilac, forsythia, and mock orange): These should be trimmed immediately after they have finished blooming, as this will help promote new growth and encourage more flowers to develop.

Regardless of the type of hedge, it’s important to trim regularly to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth. It’s also important to use sharp, clean tools to prevent damaging the plant and to avoid spreading disease. Or ask Rob to do the trimming for you 🙂
