Prunus pruning

heron bheron b Posts: 6

I planted a prunus hedge at the end of last year with mature plants (3-4ft tall) and nipped the ends to encourage some thickening which seems to have worked. If I prune it now after the spring flush has matured will this encourage further growth or should I leave it until the autumn. What I'm looking for is the best way to create a dense hedge fast. I think the variety was P.lauro Australia
