When to prune laurel hedging

ian mc cormack asked 12 years ago

I have planted laurel hedging on the boundaries of my site ranging in height at present from 3 ft to 5 ft. I now wish to prune this hedging and wonder when is the best time to prune and what is the best way to prune the hedging.

Clip laurel in September and it will stay neat for the longest period of the year. Clip with a hedgetrimmer keeping it narrower at the top that at the base to allow light to the base.
