Pruning promotes growth – The Buxus is known as a slow grower, so a lot of trimming and styling will not be at the top of your to-do list. It could be a job that you will postpone for as long as possible.
Unfortunately, that is the wrong way of thinking, because pruning promotes growth. The twigs will branch again where the Buxus is pruned. Regular pruning – preferably twice a year – results in an even more beautiful and dense Buxus shrub or topiary.
