Q.I have a life size box figure

Zone LN106UZ | Anonymous added on July 2, 2020 | Answered

The man sized figure is 4 years old and up until now has been very healthy. It is regularly watered,
fertilised and bug sprayed. This year several of the
Box plant strands have died while others are healthy. Can I get new plants to train up?

I would first try to get the dead branches to regrow. Here are some common diseases of boxes; see if you recognize the shrub's problem. You can trim back the dead wood which will encourage new growth. If it's a fungal infection you may just need to spray with a copper fungicide.
