I moved into a house last year that has a Lonicera (I think) hedge. This has been allowed to grow to almost head height and is so deep it bulges out over the shared drive so it overhangs by 18 inches or more. It is very difficult to reach the top and trim it now especially at the back.
I would like to cut this right back to reduce height and depth significantly but the foliage is only on the surface so it will end up looking horrible and completely bare afterwards. My question is whether it will recover and when I should do this if at all? I am not an expert gardener so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
