Boxwoods are tricky now. Boxwood blight is a new, terribly infectious disease of boxwood and your decisions will need to be determined by what's going on with your boxwood.

Please send us photos of your boxwood to help us diagnose the problem.

Look at the information about boxwood blight and other boxwood problems on our website: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/boxwood-culture-and-diseases-including-boxwood-blight It important to figure out what's going on with your boxwood first, then we can give you successful advice.

Meanwhile, do not dig up and toss out your boxwood because that might spread the disease.
