Bare patches in your Boxwood
Using the step-by-step plan above, you can keep your Boxwood healthy and strong, thus preventing bald spots in your Boxwood .
Should one or more bare spots have appeared in your Boxwood , you can cut away the dead branches from the plants. You can check if there is still life in a twig by scratching away the bark with your fingernail. If the twig is still green inside, it is not dead yet and can still recover. If the twig is no longer green inside, it can be cut away to make room for healthy twigs. After cutting away the bald spots, the plants will regrow over time.
After this, you can follow the step-by-step plan for strong and healthy Boxwood so that your plants will always look beautiful from now on.
