pruning or trimming hedges
I recently moved into a new-to-me home. The hedges need to be trimmed. However I have no idea what type of hedge these are. They are not coniferous but they hold leaves all year around even in the snow...according to the former owner of the home. I am somewhat of an amateur at gardening...but I am wanting to try. I am a Midwesterner, so I am a not very knowledgeable about foliage in this state. When should I trim the hedges? Can I still trim the hedges before this winter?
