Boxwood Revisit: Regrowth After Summertime Defoliation

This summer season we hard trimmed a Japanese Boxwood. This method is normally booked for plants like Spear Maple as well as Ficus. Establish in advance, a leggy, solid Japanese Boxwood can likewise react well.

Boxwood is a bush plant, as well as many hedge plants react well to trimming back right into timber. Our difficult trim left no fallen leaves– a pause-inducing choice, if you have actually refrained from doing this previously.


Very Early August, 2022, prior to trimming. This Japanese Boxwood obtained great dosages of plant food beginning in the loss of 2021, proceeding via the springtime of 2022.


Right after difficult trimming, very early August, 2022. Afterwards it invested a couple of weeks in a greenhouse.

And Also this is the Boxwood in late October, 2022, 2 as well as a half months later on. No change of the development has actually been done. What did this attain? Lowered legginess, smaller sized fallen leaves, even more implication, which uncommon sight of an evergreen without fallen leaves, which can offer a lot more certain architectural choices. I want to tension that this ought to just be tried on a solid Boxwood with a lengthy increase in feeding. The moisture of a greenhouse can offer it a wonderful benefit in healing.
