How to cut back overgrown pyracantha bushes
I am a Friend of our local park and volunteer regularly. At our entrance we have several pyracantha bushes that have never been looked after or pruned. At the moment they’re showing signs of berries forming. Should I wait until all the berries are over before cutting them back because we have lots of birds and I’m sure they will need these berries during the winter. Also could you please advise how far back we should cut the bushes. They’re currently rather wild and we would like to make that area of garden looking nice as it’s the first thing you see as you enter the park. My thought would be to cut them back very hard after the berries have gone and let the Spring bulbs around them stand out. I would love to hear your views. Thanks in advance.
