Q.Uneven Growing Of Red Robin Hedge

Zone BH17 8TU | Jennifer Adams added on October 2, 2022 | Answered

I have a Red Robin Hedge that was planted at the front of my front garden. I am unable to trim it or cut it so it is straight. To be honest I am afraid of cutting it too much. But one side of the hedge is higher than the other. How can I get the lower side to grow higher or trim the higher side lower so it looks better? I would like in the end to have all the hedge at the hight of the highest side approximately. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Unfortunately, constant pruning may be your best option. In my area, pruning these is a careful chore. In your part of the world, you don't have to worry as much about Photinia Leaf Spot disease. So, you can prune a little less carefully.
