When is the best time of year for cutting hydrangea bushes back?

United Kingdom Gb

I live in South Wales, the bushes are approx 25 years old, and bloom beautifully every year, I have trimmed them back before, but wondered when the best time was. at the moment the bushes are covered in flowersI



April, when new growth has begun, and that includes the deadheading- flowers should be left on over the winter.

one idea with hydrangeas is to prune one third per year mainly old wood or branches in the wrong place especially on old bushes I agree with bamboo as to everything else
