Pruning Viburnums

Anonymous added on September 20, 2011 | Answered

I have several viburnum shrubs on side yard. I love them; however, they have grown too large. I very much want to cut them back to about three feet. Do I dare do that this fall? I really need to cut them back as I have undesirables growing among them, such as wild grapevines adn polk salad, and can't get to these pests without trimming the shrubs.
