When is the best time to trim shrubs, i.e. firebushes. My bushes seems to have doubled in size this Spring? Will it hurt them if I trim them back now?

Spring is the best time to prune your firebushes back. They will respond by sending out healthy new stems. If any new branches are misplaced, simply prune them back during the summer months. Best wishes with your garden!
