When should I prune these?

Hi there, 

Just wanted to check when the best time to prune these are? Think it's ok between now and Feb while they're dormant but just wanted to make sure. 

Any other care info would also be much appreciated. 

Thanks guys

    Late winter/early spring is the best time for pruning. Are you trying to create a hedge or do you want to keep them as individual shaped trees (topiary)?
  • Thanks Steephill. The original plan was to do a hedge but thinking I might try and shape the top while the bottom grows together. Might look kinda cool??!! Cheers

    Trim away but not into any brown leaves / wood, the variety looks like cypress Lemon goldcrest you'll know when you trim them they smell quite nice. 
  • Thanks Perki. Might wait until after the big man comes at this stage 😀 but will definitely get to it in the new year. And yes, think they are lemon goldcrest now that you mention it. Cheers
