Slightly overgrown onto front path..
Hello everyone, i have a spirea although not sure which one...this the leaves are generally more golden than green...I think its one of the ones that I would normally cut back very hard in Spring. Would it be ok to do this now or should I just shorten stems by half and then full haircut in spring. I don't want to lose it but I can see it is growing a little too much across the front pedestrian path of the main road.
Also have a thicket of Hazel that keeps growing every year. I cannot dig it out unfortunately and it is half way in our garden and half way on the street side - Again I'm pretty sure in March I would usually sheer this to the ground also but can I do this now or am I better doing half now to tidy and then the fully monty in spring? Many thanks
