Hi the I'm a Gardener but starting up for myself this year part time

    Hi Josh, I worked for a housing association gardening team and there is government legislation that forbids hedge pruning between 1st of march and the 1st of September to prevent disrupting nesting birds and wildlife. Good luck with your new venture!
