A hedge-trimmer is your best bet.

If you could stop the rain as everything is full extra growth mode with all this rain.

What a good idea, Kath - we've all had enough! :-((

My Dad used to use a product called Cutless but I think the EU banned it, it was a growth reducing hormone, like the growers spray onto pot plant to inhibit the growth.

Pamg is right - all the growth retardant products have been withdrawn.
