Form boxwood – some tips and examples

Form boxwood - some tips and examples

 Formally designed gardens look elegant, well-groomed and appealing in every season. No other plant is better suited for the shape cut than the boxwood or book mentioned yet. The boxwood grows very slowly as evergreen shrub or rarely smaller tree with stature heights of up to 8 meters. He forms short branches  out, which later kale. Since it is easy to maintain, it is also open to cultivation in the garden. The most popular shape is the ball, though it's not that easy to cut. Normally you use stencils for boxwood. With the right cut you can do that boxwood shape, so that you get a good figure. The time to cut is to plan for the beginning of May-June.



Manual cutters when cutting are hedge trimmers, secateurs, shearers, secateurs or saws. An important tip here: Choose for the pruning of Buchsbaums a cloudy day, so that the injured leaves and shoots do not burn.
