The idea is to prune in early soring to provide maximum growth rate. however, I would still,prune it now Back to the base Peanuts.  You will still get enough wood this summer...just not as much.  I would give it a generous feed and water it well during the summer

Well, comfront your neighbour.  Get him to pay for your new climber.  What a b....y cheek for him to butcher your hedge like that.

but your hedge should grow back.  Tell him not to touch your hedge again.  Do you feel comfortable confronting him?

'Dead' soil

Yes...I assume its the dried, bagged concentrated stuff.

the rudbeckias, are they the annual or perennial type?  For the perennials I would trench in plenty of garden compost or bulky manures in the autumn.

However, mix a few handsfull of dried manure with your soil before returning it to the planting site.  Keep area well watered during summer
