Climbers such as wisteria, which have produced long wispy new growths since their summer pruning (after they flowered), are a good example of climbers that need to be kept in check.
Whatever time of the year you are pruning, and whatever the plant, you should always start by removing dead, dying or damaged branches.
You can do the same to ornamental vines – cut back new growth to two or three buds from the main branches – and with climbing roses you can cut back shoots that have flowered to just one third of their length and tie in any new shoots.
CONIFER hedges have had a bad press over the years but if you trim them several times during the season you can avoid the risk of a leylandaii war with your next-door neighbour
The most important thing to remember with conifer hedges is that, with the exception of yew trees (Taxus baccata), old wood cannot produce new growth so you must never give them a short back and sides cut.
