Rejuvenating Overgrown Boxleaf Honeysuckle
We have inherited an old hedge, from internet pictures identified as boxleaf honeysuckle but I could be wrong.
It is some 8 feet tall, thick at the top, with holes at the bottom and unevenly trimmed, with another bush growing inside and damaged by overgrown brambles at the far end.
I tried to find some information and some of the sources say I can cut up to half of its height to encourage lower growth. I would like to double check as I know little about gardening and need to persuade our neighbours for such radical operation.
Any advice appreciated! Thanks,
