Question: pruning laurel
Good morning, I would like to know if I can prune the laurel-hedge hedge in this period, not having been able to do it earlier, I would not want to do it in March so as not to disturb the birds that nest inside it, so if the cut in January-February would dry out? Thank you, see you soon.
Answer: prune laurel
lauroceraso has always been used to compose hedges because it is a truly rustic plant, which is not affected by pruning. There are those who prune it even four times a year, without the plant weakening. The best times to prune it are November-December, or January-February. If the cold is very intense, wait a few weeks, otherwise proceed without worrying.
