How To Fertilize
When it comes time to feed your Green Pillar Boxwood no need to worry it's as easy as can be. When first planting we recommend adding fertilizer to the planting site as the first feeding. If you planted during the spring re-apply fertilizer in late fall before the dormancy of winter. If you planted in fall, wait till spring before the push of new growth to fertilize your shrub. Remember these steps for the life of the plant and you will continue to have lavish foliage each year.
How To Prune
So you've planted your Green Pillar Boxwood and it's time to consider the pruning process. Well you are in luck, due to the tight upright growth habit of this shrub pruning is almost non existent.
