Boxwood - Knowledgebase Question

Lancaster, Ne
Question by tkluterek

I have 2 boxwoods. One has quite a few brown leaves. I have watered and fertilized. I have also cut off most of the brown areas. What causes this? Is it a disease, fungus, or insect that I cannot see?
Please advise.

thank you

Peculiar... With only one with brown leaves makes me think of exposure as the issue. The should recover, just give them a little more time. Boxwoods are quite adaptable. I bet the one with the brown leaves is facing east probably suffered winter damage - dessicating winds, frost, etc. Cutting off the dead foliage is a good first step. Now they need to recover before they can resume growing. Best wishes with your shrubs.
