New escallonia hedge

Rita Noonan asked 14 years ago

Gerry, We have a new hedge on an open, windy site. We sowed Escallonia last September & it’s now beginning to flower & look good. We’ve been told we should prune it now to strengthen it for next year. Is that true? Thanks for your help.

If it is a bit gangly it can be pruned to tighten in up and creat more shoots from lower down.
