pruning boxwood hedge
I live in Michigan, zone 6. I had a lot of low boxwood hedges. I clipped them in July last. They look shaggy and I'd like to prune them before winter but I get conflicting advice. Last year I pruned them in a warm day in February, but I'd rather do it now if I can. thanks

Now would be a very bad time to do this. July would be a much better time to prune these. Doing so now would not give the shrub enough time to harden off before frost arrives, and would risk the health of the shrub.
