When to plant a hedge

Evergreen and semi-evergreen hedging: Early autumn is ideal for hedging plants such as box, privet (semi-evergreen) and yew. However, they can be planted at any time from late autumn until late winter

Deciduous hedging: Plant beech, hawthorn and hornbeam any time from leaf fall. This is typically from mid-autumn until late winter

In all cases, planting is best delayed until the soil can be worked easily, especially if the ground is frozen or waterlogged.

When to Trim Hedges

New hedges require formative pruning for their first couple of years after planting. Formative pruning is usually carried out in winter or spring.

After this, maintenance trimming is carried out, usually once a year for informal hedges and twice a year for formal hedges. Some formal hedges may need three cuts a year.

Maintenance trimming is generally carried out between spring and late autumn (October).

Maintenance Trimming

Clip to the desired shape one to three times during summer, until late autumn (most hedges can be clipped into October), when trimming should cease to reduce the risk of bare patches.

Please Note:

It’s best practice when undertaking work on garden hedges check that there are no birds nesting, as it is an offence under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 to damage or destroy the nest of any wild bird while it is in use or being built.

With conifer hedges, make sure you do not trim them after August, as this can encourage bare patches to develop in the hedge. Most hedges can be safely pruned into late autumn (October).

Boundary hedges can quickly grow to overhang the street or pavement. These should be trimmed to ensure they do not impede access by pedestrians. Even regularly trimmed hedges can gradually get bigger over the years; most deciduous and broadleaved evergreen hedges can be successfully renovated but some (including many conifer hedges) are best replaced when overgrown.
