    I have a customer who has a bed full of Indian Hawthorne's. They are quite large and are grown past the physical edges of the beds. In order to get them back under control I will have to cut them back past the foliage. (sp)

    Anyway, just wondering if now (they are dormant) is the time or if I should wait till they start to gear up in the spring, or id in the middle of the growing season is better.

    I'm going to have to reduce the plant in size by about 50%......

    Usually on flowering plants you trim them back after they bloom. They should bloom in very early spring.
