Question From: Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, United States
Q: My boxwood was bought in the spring of 2013.It is a big potted planter. I had it in the back yard where it flourished.I never pruned it. Before the first frost I put it on the covered front porch. Its been a cold winter and windy but it was fine. I had the pot wrapped with burlap.Problem was i watered it a couple times because the soil looked really dry. The last 2 weeks its been turning yellowish brown on the ends. Did i kill it because it is still cold out?
Jen, Be patient and give the plant some time. Browned out branches can be pruned back and the boxwood will come back. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
