The Q&A Archives: forsythia pruning

Question: I have forsythia across the front of the house I recently bought. They are looking scragly. Should I cut them back? How low? Cut old growth only? How can I tell the old growth? Box hedge them? How do I get the prettiest flowering in the spring? When do I prune them, if I do? I think they are a flowering shrub.
