New Photinia

We planted photinias 6 weeks ago to create a hedge. They have grown only a little and I’m wondering when we should give them the first prune. Can you help?

Newly planted trees and shrubs usually don’t start rapid growth immediately, they need time to acclimate and become established. I would wait until next spring before trimming them for the first time.
