Q.Pruning Photinia Robusta

Zone victoria3187 | Anonymous added on April 17, 2021 | Answered

Hoping that you maybe able to help. We have an extensive hedge of Photinia Robusta, which is doing well with a lot of vigorous growth. However the hedge is protruding over a footpath and needs to be extensively cut back. To do so we would have to cut 6-9 inches from face of the plant, exposing perhaps branches and no foliage. Question is would the foliage regrow over a period? Would appreciate your advise.
