I've had a good go at a Privet hedge today that had grown to about 4-5 feet wide and on my side of the garden from my neighbours had grown quite spindly. i have cut it right back to bare stems and am now beginning to wonder if I have done the right thing. Can anyone tell me if this will grow back. I am afraid it might leave me with wood stems and shoots at the top only. Photos included. I really hope I have not caused a disaster.
