I really enjoy the forum, and its been so useful in my gardening so thank you all so much! I'm hoping somebody can help me out here.
I've recently moved into a new home, and there is a huge evergreen hedge (I think its Thuja occidentalis) on the property which is great for privacy . Its overgrown and uncared for so I would like to shear it , clean it up and and rejuvenate it a little before winter but I want to make sure that its the proper time of year to do so. Some people tell me to shear it in winter dormancy, others say now is the time so that it can harden off before winter.
