Question From: Chesterfield, Virginia, United States
Q: how far back can you can cut a rounded 5 foot boxwood?
Two to three feet is recommended by Viettes in Virginia. Late winter or very early spring is recommended. I googled how far to cut back a boxwood and found this web site which gives you some option. Rejuvenation is the safest method. https://homeguides.sfgate.com/can-cut-boxwood-shrubs-back-2-3-feet-killing-them-100421.html Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
