when is the best time to prune shrubs in Central Scotland?



What shrubs in particular? Very generic advice is March is a good time as that allows the plants to heal quickly and regrow.

Usually you prune shrubs immediately after they have flowered, whenever that might be, depending on the type. It would be best to leave any pruning until Spring at least to prevent any die back. However if the plant is blocking a path etc then you could trim some off anytime.
