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
I would be inclined to leave or awhile yet
Thank you @kathy - great minds think alike 😀👍
I don't touch mine til August
Love the garden and the elegance if box but would be heartbroken if it got blight like money's garden in gardeners world - he removed it all 😔
Sorry Monty's garden in GW- predictive text !!
@titchyfra It's 10 years since it was planted... Fingers crossed 🙂
Was always told never to prune hedges until August as the birds are nesting now etc. .

It's fantastic @oldgreyheron I love it!
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.
