We are working on high Laurel hedges taking off 2ft. the sides were cut in the late summer. If you are cutting, it is best with secateurs not to bruise and damage the leaves.

Thanks Doctorbob 1. I don`t need to cut to much off, just cut the tops back.

No probs - they are about the only plant that is green in my garden at the moment. Wish spring would hurry up!
