The Q&A Archives: Do I need to water shrub boxwood daily?

Question: I just bought a shrub boxwood from HomeDepot, the plant code is THDA3538.

Answer: If you have planted your new boxwood into the ground, water it deeply twice a week to help it establish its root system. After about 3 weeks you can gradually reduce the frequency (but not the amount) of water you give your boxwood. Usually one deep soaking per week is all your boxwood will need once it has established its root system.

If your boxwood is still in the nursery pot - you may need to water every day during the summer months. Best wishes with your new shrub.
