What to Prune When in Your Garden for the Healthiest Plants
Shrubs like boxwood and privet are often sheared to form a hedge. To maintain a solid wall of green, shear the new growth frequently during the early part of the growing season (late winter to early spring or mid- to late summer are some of the best times to prune hedges). Keep the top narrower than the base so that the upper branches don't shade the lower ones. Stop shearing the hedge about six weeks before your area's average first frost.
