I HAVE 4 FORSYTHIAS THAT ARE TAKING OVER MY GARDEN.
DOES ANYBODY KNOW PLEASE HOW I CAN TRIM THEM BACK AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME AND TURN THEM INTO HEDGES OR SMALL PLANTS.
ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
If you want them to flower next year -this is not the time to cut them-if you are not that bothered then do it now-the best time is after flowering but you will struggle to keep them as small plants and have flowers.
What height are you thinking of?
I believe, one normally prunes just the part of the branches that have flowered, any when after June. It has always worked perfectly with mine.
