Our Bridal Veil hedge is more than 30 years old.
This morning it is in full bloom. it is more than 7 ft. tall. See our neighbor's garage and 2-story house right behind it.
Last year I noticed it was looking "tired" so I cut it back to
5 ft. high and cut off all the long branches.
In other words I gave it a severe haircut.
I was nervous, but that was exactly what it needed!
This year it looks the best it has in years.
