Pruning esplanier trees
Hi, I'm a new member so hope that I've posted this in the right place.
I'm no gardener at all, so please be patient!
These images show my neighbour's esplanier trees. She is elderly, and has given me permission to cut them back (and reduce the height).
Should I be using any particular technique or, given that it will grow madly over the coming months, just take 6 inches off the top with my hedge trimmer?
Thanks for your help in advance.
