North East England, United Kingdom
Hi there - my first question for quite some time! My dad who has just moved house has a largeish pyracantha hedge at the bottom of the garden. The height, at about 7 foot, is not a problem, but the depth of it is. I think it's probably about 4-5 foot deep. He wants to keep it for security reasons (their garden backs onto a public footpath) but would like to reduce the width, probably by about half. If he does this, will the shrub green up again or will he be left just with a lot of wood and maybe even lose the shrub all together? Many thanks for any advice.
