I have many bushes planted together and I'd like to prune them lower to the ground, substantial pruning (6-8 inches). when is the best time to do that, and is that too much pruning for 3' bushes?

The ideal time to prune azalea is right after it blooms; otherwise, you risk trimming off next year's blooms. More information is below. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/azalea/pruning-azaleas.htm
