The Q&A Archives: Pruning or shearing

Question: Just bought Berri-Magic Kid's Holly combo. and Faulkner Boxwood. Would you please give me advice in keeping them the size and shape we would like in the future? Best time to do this?
Thank you,
Diane Bachmann

Answer: Spring is the best time to prune or shear your boxwood and combo holly. This will give the plants all summer to replace the pruned leaves and stems and will give your holly a chance to develop flowering (and berry producing) stems.

Enjoy your landscape!
