How to Care for your Boxwood Shrubs:
Boxwoods are best planted in Full to Partial Sun as this brings out the darkest color in the foliage. Very little is needed as far as care is concerned with Boxwoods. A supplemental watering is sometimes beneficial during periods of prolonged drought.There is probably no shrub that is more happy to be trimmed but it is certainly not a requirement to boxwood health. Doing this in the spring is the best opportunity as the plant has the most vigor during the spring.
