I have some new, about 1 ft, english boxwoods. They are now snow-covered, should I dig them out or leave things alone?

Once your boxwood are snow covered it is best to leave them alone, since trying to remove the snow frequently causes more damage than if they are left alone. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/boxwood-culture-and-diseases-including-boxwood-blight https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/faqs-shrubs-fallwinter vw
