I have a huge hidcote which is 18 years old....last year I pruned it as usual in August....but I was wondering if I should cut back in Spring as it went a little woody and didnt green up until June time????? Yes maybe I cut back too hard...dont think so though...advice appreciated. x

sorry only just seen your message...send a pic of your plot...conifers prefer acid soil, but not that fussed as they are hardy little things....gravel? we use granite in white/grey buy online in bulk x
