When is the best time to trim back your bushes?

The bushes in my flowerbed are too large. I want them smaller so I can plant some flowers in front of them.

    Hi Lynn. For shrubs that flower in spring the best time to trim is right after they have flowered. Same for any shrubs that flower in summer, right after they flower. For evergreen shrubs I trim those in spring, but you can trim them anytime.
