To cut back, or not to cut back...
So I've begun working my way around the overgrown shrubs in the garden, and have come to this one.
Firstly I'm not sure what it is... and secondly, would it benefit from some of the branches/trunks whatever you call them (you can all tell I'm a pro!) back like you would a tree?
I feel like I want to thin it out, get rid of some of the crossing and gnarly branches, and open it out a bit. Or is it a lost cause? I think it has been ignored and then hacked for years.
