In this session attendees will learn about the growing list of pests that are affecting boxwoods. Why does it seem that this hardy and adaptable shrub has suddenly come under attack by a myriad of pests, with 2 relatively new ones joining in on the assault?
You will learn about these pests, what to look for, how to identify the symptoms and how to treat for them.
Finally, we will cover the PROPER cultural practices that are needed to keep the natural vigor that boxwoods have in place, to increase their ability to defend themselves.
