Dear Anne,

The best time to prune a Murraya hedge is after it has finished flowering. After you prune, apply a fertiliser such as Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Impover and Fertiliser to encourage new growth. If you haven't pruned your hedge for a number of years, I would suggest not to prune too heavily on the first occasion. You can prune again later and continue to prune your hedge at least twice a year from then on in. Remember to apply a fertiliser after each prune. Hopefully your hedge hasn't become too woody and you are able to get it back into shape, producing lots of new growth. I am sure with a little care you will soon have your hedge looking the way you want.
