Don’t let bad box pruning happen to you!

Bad Boxwood Pruning

SHEARING = BAD BOXWOOD PRUNING

Friends don’t let friends shear boxwood: Check out the brown leaves cut in half, carelessly and needlessly wrecking photosynthesis potential for making food for the plant. This type of “pruning” also, unfortunately encourages foliage to grow as an outer “shell”, blocking light and air circulation to the interior. SAD!
