Boxwood Watering/Yellow Leaves - Knowledgebase Question

Colorado Springs, Co
Question by jtmoses2001

We purchased 4 Julia Jane Boxwoods approx. 2 weeks ago. I began watering twice daily for the 2 week period (noticed the required amount is 1-2 times weekly). About 25% of each plant's leaf tips have turned yellow. Will too much H2O cause this? How long until it greens back up... since I've cut back?

Now that you have adjusted your watering schedule, the boxwoods should recover. I would give them a few more weeks to adjust to their new sites before pruning them back a bit. When you prune you will encourage healthy new growth. Just an inch or two all around each plant should prompt new growth. Best wishes with your boxwoods.
