The cutting back of large shrubs and bushes falls into two categories – Evergreen & Deciduous.
Evergreen – Shrubs Like Ceanothus, Choisya, Laurel, Elaeagnus, Photinia (Red Robin), Euonymus, Pittosporum, Viburnum and the like can be cut back any time in their growing season from April through till October.
If the plant in question flowers, then to save the flowers time, cut back as soon as possible after flowering.
Deciduous – Shrubs like Lilac, Forsythia, Philadelphus, Buddleja, Sambucus (Elderberry), Deutzia, Ribes and Kerria.
These plants can be cut back at any time of the year, but remember that if you cut them back before flowering you will lose the flowers that year.
