Too late to prune photinia?
I've been looking at old (some positively ancient) threads on this subject. I know you can hard prune photinia - it would appear even if you can't see buds to prune back to - but is it too late to do it now. I think I've said before that, when we moved in here 5 years ago, the previous owners kept the garden tidy but had no idea about pruning. It's taken me this long to get good shapes on the buddleja, physocarpus, ribes, etc. etc. but because they've all been properly pruned, they've decided that life is good after all and have grown enormously. The photinia is lovely, about 8 by 8 feet but really needs to come back to around 5-6 feet in each plane - especially as it's vying for space now with the weigela (also now looking great)...can I do it now? All at once? Or bit by bit over the winter? It's a Red Robin. Thanks so much.
