I live to the south of Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire. Somewhat overcome by the work needed in the garden, I share bits of it! Twitter @oldgreyheron

My box hedging needs trimming. Is it too early? I suspect so. #advice

Was always told never to prune hedges until August as the birds are nesting now etc. .

The traditional time for pruning buxus is Derby Day (1st Saturday in June). Maybe an old wive's tale but a late frost before this wouldn't be very attractive on those newly clipped leaves.
