If you want a beech hedge to retain its foliage over winter you should give it its annual trim in August. As a trimmed hedge is continually renewing its leaves it should be fed with a good general fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in spring and a mulch of well rotted garden compost in autumn.
If you miss the August pruning deadline, it's best to wait till spring..
