Follow-up question on trimming of oversized hedges

Asked September 23, 2019, 3:35 PM EDT

Back in July I asked about trimming of oversized euonymus hedges. The recommendation received was to cut them back by 1/3, and that is what we tried to do. When would be the next time to cut by the still oversized hedges? Would the second trimming also be about 1/3? Thanks!

Prune again next spring before it puts out the new growth. Yes, you can remove 1/3rd.
