Boxwoods

Asked June 10, 2018, 3:50 PM EDT

I pruned boxwoods and the interior is bare and lacks greenery. How do I increase the greenery?

You can only be patient and let them regrow.

However, plants need light to reach the leaves in order to fill in. It is recommended that shrubs in a hedge be pruned wider in the bottom than at the top.

Take a look at this publication about pruning: http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_docs/programs/hgic/HGIC_Pubs/TreesandShrubs/...
