Boxwoods: How to prune and care for them

Boxwoods grow in a wide variety of soil types as long as the pH is alkaline or slightly acidic and the soil is not compacted or poorly drained. Internal soil drainage is critical for boxwood. It grows poorly on heavy, compacted soil or in areas where the roots might be waterlogged for long periods of time. Boxwood can be grown in full sun or partial shade and is quite drought tolerant. Winter cold limits its survival in northern gardens and special care must be taken to select a hardy variety such as 'Vardar Valley' or Korean boxwood if you live where winters are frigid.
