Lighten the darkness

United Kingdom Gb

My son has an overgrown prunus which blocks light from kitchen window. Would it ruin the bush if we cut it back now (August)

On plant Prunus



I'd chop it back and let the light in.

Many thanks. Will do anyway but just wanted to know whether to expect its demise

I wouldn't expect it to.
